This disc brings together for the first time two of the most important performances of Carl Nielsen's Symphonies that did much to further the international acceptance of his music. From the Edinburgh Festival of 1950, we have the legendary performance of the Fifth Symphony under Erik Tuxen, issued for the first time in this format, and from 1955 the deeply-admired account of the beautiful Third Symphony, the 'Espansiva' under John Frandsen. These outstanding, ground-breaking performances have long been very rare collector's items, and with the benefit of modern techniques, have never sounded better. A truly important issue in the composer's discography, and a timely reminder of the international quality of the Danish State Radio Symphony Orchestra of the time.
