CRITIC REVIEW:

“Thomas Jensen, the conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra (from 1957) and the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, who visited the United States in 1952 and again in 1958 with the Danish National Orchestra, was considered one of the great conductors of Denmark. Jensen is best remembered (with Erik Tuxen and Launy Grøndahl) as one of the pioneers of the music of Carl Nielsen. Nielsen's daughters held that Jensen was the conductor whose performances came closest to Nielsen's own.

Besides his visits to the United States in 1952 and 1958, when he led the Danish National Orchestra in Carnegie Hall concerts, Mr. Jensen also conducted the Orchestra on tour in many European cities.”
