Catalogue Number: 03I048
Description: Amazingly, everything here is currently available elsewhere (sometimes only once, though) except for the Willemoes third act prelude. The 13 minutes of Snefrid excerpts is the longest item here, among Nielsen's earliest works, completed just a year after the Symphony No. 1. Nielsen completists will certainly want such a collection of rarely heard (and even more rarely recorded) music. Danish National Symphony Orchestra/DR; Thomas Dausgaard. SACD hybrid.
