Since the 1960s, the six symphonies of Carl Nielsen have become firmly established in the repertoire, though complete recordings of them have been comparatively scarce. That's why this box set from BIS is a welcome offering, and Nielsen collectors will also be glad to have the Helios Overture, Saga-Drøm, and Pan and Syrinx, which round out the three discs.

Osmo Antero Vänskä (born 28 February 1953) is a Finnish conductor, clarinetist and composer. He started his musical career as an orchestral clarinetist with the Turku Philharmonic (1971–76). He then became the principal clarinet of the Helsinki Philharmonic from 1977 to 1982. During this time, he started to study conducting with Jorma Panula at the Sibelius Academy, where his classmates included Esa-Pekka Salonen and Jukka-Pekka Saraste.

Composed By – Carl Nielsen. Conductor – Osmo Vänskä. Engineer – Martin Nagorni (tracks: 1-9, 2-9, 3-7). Orchestra – BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra (tracks: 1-1 to 1-8, 2-1 to 2-8, 3-1 to 3-6), Lahti Symphony Orchestra (tracks: 1-9, 2-9, 3-7). Producer – Robert Suff (tracks: 1-1 to 1-8, 2-1 to 2-8, 3-1 to 3-6), Thore Brinkmann (tracks: 1-9, 2-9, 3-7).

Osmo Vanska's Nielsen cycle with the BBC Scottish is a very mixed bag. The problem is not the sound (which is great) nor the execution by the orchestra (which is also excellent) but the interpretations by Vanska. Most of the symphonies are of the too-fast "runaway train" tempo, or somewhat too fast (Fourth, Sixth). The Fifth, however, is an exception, and the highlight of this set.

A complete cycle of the Sibelius symphonies, such as was embarked on by the LPO last night, is an attractive enough proposition in its own right. To have it conducted by Osmo Vanska, the composer’s compatriot and one of his finest interpreters today, makes it very special indeed. The First Symphony in E minor may not be a masterpiece on the level of the later ones, but Vanska, with his taut rhythms and furious tempi, makes it a thrilling helter-skelter ride.
