A Hans Christian Andersen memorial concert casts orchestral enchantment on album 1, while extracts from two portrait concerts on album 2 revive the distinctively Danish idioms of Hamerik and Sandby. 2 CDs. Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Tivoli Concert Hall Orchestra; Thomas Jensen. Live and Studio Recordings 1938-1961.
