Alan Gilbert conducts landscape scenes by Mendelssohn and Nielsen

Landscapes and folklore have inspired the creativity of many great composers. Alan Gilbert presents two lovely examples in this recording from 2014. While Mendelssohn’s Scottish Symphony reflects impressions of his travels in Scotland, Carl Nielsen’s musical language is shaped almost entirely by the composer’s Danish home, as his atmospherically dense Symphony Nr. 3 proves.
