Four symphonies and two suites by late-Romantic Danish composers and contemporaries of Carl Nielsen, led with passion and authority by Launy Grøndahl in studio recordings made in the twilight of his distinguished career. Noble Classical ideals and typically Danish energy mark out the Sinfonia Svastika of Louis Glass and Second Symphony by Rudolf Simonsen. The neoclassical elegance of P.S. Rung-Keller’s suite contrasts with the boisterous character of Johannes Andersen’s example. Hakon Børresen’s Second Symphony is a buoyant sea-scape, while Herman Sandby’s Fourth is coloured by the influence of Delius and Grainger. Volume 6 featuring the Kuhlau opera Lulu is in preparation for a April 2021.
