Orchestral Works

Frank Cramer, conductor
Jena Philharmonic Orchestra

The Jena Philharmonic’s playing under Frank Cramer’s sympathetic
direction is a delight, and Dacapo’s sound is excellent.These performances
repay repeated listenings, the hallmark of a splendid disc.
Gramophone, Great Britain, September 4, 2012

The Jenaer Philharmonics, conducted by Frank Cramer, yield an immaculate
interpretation and enhance the repertoire about three most interesting
orchestra scores 'made in Denmark'.
Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, Germany, May 2012

'...We celebrate this impassioned discovery and are highly enthusiastic
about the tremendous joy of listening it! ...'
Classica, France, May 1, 2012

The German Frank Cramer offers more nuanced accounts of these two
scores… His Third Symphony is as magisterial as this great score demands
and deserves. This release is essential to anyone interested in 20th-century
Scandinavian repertoire.
Fanfare, USA, August 10, 2012

'...Frank Cramer, an approved partner of the Jenaer Philharmony,
understands how to make use of the capacities of the orchestra,
in the sense of a balanced and likewise record-suitable sound
pattern and conclusive dramaturgy ...'
