Nielsen's second symphony was inspired by a naïve but vivid painting representing the four temperaments of the human personality. Adopting these defining characters for each of the symphony's movements Nielsen realised a sonic depiction of emotion. His third symphony, the most openly Danish of his symphonies, portrays spaciousness, power and vitality and is considered his greatest international achievement.

'Davis approaches both works with driving energy...this recording is an exhilarating display of the life-force at full blast in both composer and conductor.'  BBC Music Magazine

'This third and final CD from the series reminds us why Davis is so attuned to Nielsen: the music's Beethovenian conflict brings out the visceral dynamism in his personality. The opening and closing movements of these two symphonies bristle with vitality, and even in the slower music...Davis finds metaphysical fire and majesty, reinforced by the London Symphony Orchestra's meaty tone.'  Financial Times

'The LSO responds with relish ... Davis's readings are a notable achievement, and one can only admire his having taken on a major cycle this late in his career.' International Record Review

'...with this set he establishes himself as a Nielsenian of the first rank...Uplifting, inspired stuff.' Sunday Times

'There's none of the angst and anger that came later in Nielsen's work, but plenty of rugged, boisterous, quirky and sometimes beautifully rustic music, which the London Symphony Orchestra deliver with a terrific punch in these concert recordings.'  The Times
