Description
Denmark's Carl Nielsen described his third symphony of 1911 as "a hymn to work and the healthy enjoyment of life." It made his international reputation and remains his most popular work. Other pieces include Helios, his portrait of a summer day in Athens, and a paraphrase on the hymn "Nearer My God to Thee."

"This is music in bold but conservative harmonies, filled with strong thematic ideas and striking thematic invention, and forming a real bridge between neoromanticism and the more advanced form of 20th century music. It is Mahler without the neurosis."—Chicago Sun-Times

"[Douglas] Bostock's growing reputation as a conductor is fully underlined by this glowing performance of the Sinfonia Espansiva. He sustains the urgent, throbbing pulse of the first movement, handles the characteristically quirky third movement with great finesse and imbues the finale with the requisite degree of warmth and muscularity. The disc also contains two performances of the second movement—the version invariably heard with wordless solos for soprano and tenor, and what is claimed to be the first ever recording of Nielsen's alternative version in which the singers are replaced by clarinet and trombone…. No Nielsen devotee should miss these accounts of the symphony and Helios which are superbly played and recorded."—Musicweb International
