Synopsis

Product Description
There are still unknown, exciting sides to Denmark's worldfamous
composer, Carl Nielsen (1865-1931). On this CD you
can hear the premiere recordings of two of his cantatas for choir,
soloists and orchestra. The cantatas were written in 1908-09, when
Carl Nielsen was in one of his most productive phases. They have
been performed several times since, but it is only in connection
with the new collected edition of Nielsen's works that they have appeared
in print. The same is true of his genial Homage to Holberg,
written in 1923 to celebrate the great 18th-century dramatist to
whom Carl Nielsen also paid homage with his opera Maskarade.
