This final volume in the Scandinavian Classics series, Volume 5, is a release to the memory of Lyndon Jenkins who planned and produced the first four volumes. We have selected his most beloved recordings and they are all issued here in new transfers, many, like the Hamerik Symphony, on CD for the first time.
