Avery Fisher Hall, Lincoln Center, New York City. Alan Gilbert, New York Philharmonic. Carl Nielsen: Symphonies No. 3 "Sinfonia espansiva" & 2 "The Four Temperaments".
Orchestra: New York Philharmonic Orchestra. Conductor: Leonard Bernstein. Composer: Carl Nielsen. Bernstein makes magic happen here that is almost unthinkable. The way he gets the New York Philharmonic to soar with that noble theme in the first movement, while the snare drums just wail away and batter at the theme, is absolutely hair raising! It makes you glad to be alive. And also, the 2 fugal sections in the 2nd movement are pulled of in a way that can only be described as perfect.
Gilbert gets tantalisingly close on this, the first disc of his new live Nielsen cycle with the New York Philharmonic. He conjures the fizzing atmosphere of Herbert Blomstedt’s famous San Francisco recording, without its faults: we hear the counterpoints, not just the top line, and we get four considered lessons in the meaning of the word expansiveness. In the opening Allegro Gilbert maintains his well-judged speed past the big moment of rupture at bar 388 (5:52), where plenty of others slow slightly for effect. Where Gilbert really scores, though, is in the tricky Allegretto. He points its game-play in the direction of the symphonies still to come (particularly the Sixth) and from bar 120 to the end builds a kind of multi-layered, arching meta-phrase. The ugly duckling of the symphony is suddenly its subversive heart, and just as expansive as the music that surrounds it.

Artist: Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra Oramo catches the moment better than anyone. Few composers' music can blow away the cobwebs quite like that of Carl Nielsen, and David Fanning's sleeve note to this BIS disc rightly describes him as the greatest life-affirmer in the 20th-century symphonic tradition.
