“Too long neglected on disc, (his excellent Nielsen symphonies now also ALTO) Ole Schmidt and the Royal Philharmonic, with ideal couplings, offers an outstanding version at budget price of the Second Symphony….beautifully played and recorded in vivid, open sound, one of the very finest at any price” (c) Penguin Guide, 3 stars
“rich, open orchestral sound…is just as impressive in the fill-ups” (c) Gramophone
