Two thrilling 20th-century orchestral works, ideally realised in the hands of Zubin Mehta and released for the first time on CD! The volley of timpani as they hurl challenges at each other in the Nielsen is one of the most exciting moments of orchestral music. And Scriabin’s ‘Poème de l’extase’ (Poem of Ecstasy) is one of his most intoxicating orchestral works.
