Special CD: The Nielsen Project, New York Philharmonic
The Nielsen Project is a collaboration between Denmark’s Dacapo Records and the New York Philharmonic under Music Director Alan Gilbert. The NY Philharmonic will, over the next four years, record all of Nielsen’s symphonies and three solo concertos.
For the press release in New York, attended by the Queen of Denmark, I was commissioned to make a a custom CD box for the special recording of Symphony no. 2 The Four Temperaments. With the help of architect Nicolas Tai Harrison, the design was laser-etched onto a wooden box and presented as a unique gift to the Queen.
From an article in Grammophone magazine:
New York Phil to record Nielsen cycle for Dacapo
“Alan Glibert to conduct cycle for the Danish label … Such a partnership – with a non-Nordic orchestra of such high international standing – is an unusual one from the boutique Copenhagen-based label, known for manufacturing products of distinct physical as well as musical beauty.”
