Label news: DG signs Luisimain
The yellow label has signed the Italian conductor Fabio Luisi with Denmark’s national orchestra to record its first-ever cycle on the Carl Nielsen symphonies.
Fabio Luisi says: ‘For me, exploring Nielsen’s symphonies together with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra has been almost like a love affair. The more familiar I have become with this music, the more fascinating I find it, and it seems that this approach adds an extra dimension to the orchestra’s strong Nordic Nielsen tradition. Nielsen is a highly interesting, complex and deeply original composer, and I am very grateful that our new recording cycle for Deutsche Grammophon will let his music reach an even greater audience.’
It has been a good week for Luisi. He has also signed on with a Tokyo orchestra.
