Asger Hamerik is still one of the far too often overlooked great Danish composers.

Dacapo has already introduced Hamerik to an audience through recordings of his complete symphonies and his Requiem.

These profound works are here being reissued in an exclusive 4 SACD boxed set as Dacapo did earlier this year with Rued Langgaard’s complete symphonies (SACD 6200001).

This is grand Late Romantic music in the style of Berlioz, Hamerik’s teacher, recorded by Thomas Dausgaard and Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra (Symphonies 1-6) and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra (Symphony no. 7 “Choral” and the Requiem).

Gramophone Magazine

February 2010

“Dausgaard conducts with all the verve we expect from him, relishing the combination of late-Romantic lyricism and Berliozian instrumental dash. Top-notch sound from Dacapo makes this a highly enjoyable set.”
