Rating Review
Customer Rating Carl Nielsen's Sixth Symphony was for many years dismissed as his weakest, or even a failure. Increasingly it is appreciated as arguably his most powerful symphonic statement. At the International Carl Nielsen Conference in Manchester in January 2009 I gave a paper on the autobiographical content of the work as a resolution of the enigma of the simplicity/ complexity and programme/ absolute music debate.

The study score is an economic way to pursue further armchair research as I listen to various interpretations on CD. For some reason Symphony No 6 Study Score was supplied as Wilhelm Hansen publication WH30573B rather than one of the uniform series (blue books, perfect bound). At first I thought it was an older edition, but it is the new Collected Works. I'm at a loss to explain this but if it is a reprint I'm delighted: larger format, beautiful paper and spiral bound.

The other slight disappointment was that the notes on the genesis and reception of the symphony are not copied into the Study Score but as it helpfully draws our attention the existence of the notes I won't deduct a star for one further reason: the editors of the score, Denmark's Royal Library, publish these scholarly research texts online.

In conclusion, a lovely score of a great work, at a reasonable price. Nice work, Music Sales Group!!
