Indeed, throughout the fledgling First the soft-grained sound is not inappropriate. But the overriding impression remains of a proficient orchestra hardly capable of conveying the essential ruggedness that is the hallmark of mature Nielsen.

Orchestral Music (Danish National Symphony Orchestra feat. conductor: Thomas Dausgaard). Quadromania: Carl Nielsen: The Complete Symphonies. Symphonies Nos. 1, 6 (Danish National Symphony Orchestra feat. conductor: Michael Schønwandt. Carl Nielsen (Det Jyske Ensemble). 2 De fire Temperamenter, "The Four Temperaments", Op. 16, FS 29 is the second symphony by Danish composer Carl Nielsen, written in 1901–1902 and dedicated to Ferruccio Busoni. It was first performed on 1 December 1902 for the Danish Concert Association, with Nielsen himself conducting. As indicated in the subtitle, each of its four movements is a musical sketch of a humor of the four temperaments: choleric, phlegmatic, melancholic, and sanguine.

Along with the symphonies of Austrian composer Gustav Mahler, the symphonies of Danish composer Carl Nielsen were given their first real shot at the international market in the '60s during the early days of stereo. But though Mahler's symphonies caught on in a big way, Nielsen's soon symphonies faded from the international repertoire. They were revived again in the '80s during the early days of digital, but once again failed to gain international acceptance. As this 1999 recording of the Second and Third symphonies with Michael Schønwandt leading the Danish National Symphony Orchestra shows, the Danes still consider Nielsen one of their greatest composers. The playing here is deeply dedicated and profoundly affectionate, while the conducting is inspired and inspirational.

27, FS 60 "Sinfonia espansiva": II. The Planets - Suite for large orchestra, O. 2: VI. Uranus, the Magician (Allegro). 2: VII. Neptune, the Mystic (Andante). Carl August Nielsen (9th June 1865–3rd October 1931) was a conductor, violinist, and the most internationally known composer from Denmark. He is especially admired for his six symphonies.
