The Sound of Scandinavia: Specially priced six-CD set available May 19

The Sound of Scandinavia
Composers: Niels W. Gade, Edvard Grieg, Jean Sibelius, Hugo Alfven, Christian Sinding, Carl Nielsen, Franz Adolf Berwald, Armas Järnefelt, Johann Svendsen, Wilhelm Stenhammar, Ture Rangström, Wilhelm Peterson-Berger, Lars-Erik Larsson, Dag Wirén, Hans Christian Lumbye

The music of the three countries known collectively as Scandinavia ( Norway , Denmark , and Sweden ) plus that of Finland , is largely known through the works of just three great composers: the Norwegian Edvard Grieg; the Dane Carl Nielsen, and the Swedish-speaking Finn Jean Sibelius. This new set of six CDs not only brings together a selection of works by these three masters, but also puts them in the company of some other lesser-known, but no less deserving, composers such as Niels W. Gade, Franz Berwald, Armas Järnefelt, Ture Rangström, Lars-Erik Larsson, and more.

This set is a perfect way for fans of Sibelius, Nielsen, and Grieg to explore the marvelous works of their compatriots, helping to shine a spotlight on the unjustly neglected music of Scandinavia!
