For 150 years the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen has manifested itself as one of the central institutions in Danish musical life. A succession of great names in Danish music, creators as well as performers, have worked at RDAM, and this 12-album box set paints a unique portrait in sound of RDAM and important aspects of Danish music from the end of the 1800s until our own time. Some of these recordings are brand-new and made just for this release, while others are historic recordings, made at the beginning of the twentieth century. Together they portray one of the most important cultural institutions in Denmark. An extensive booklet including a forward by the organization’s president, a comprehensive essay, and commentary on all of the albums is also included.


Complete with a 128-page booklet with multiple articles in English and Danish, this is a more than fitting memorial to the first 150 years of this august Danish institution.
