Rued Langgaard completed his first Symphony at the age of only 17 years. No Danish composer had previously written such an ambitious, demanding and long Symphony, and was also known as uspillelig. But in 1913 was the first performed with great success by the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Max Fiedler. Langgaard's role models is Tchaikovsky, Wagner and Bruckner, but the oven houses the frapper, original spots and offers a rich experience hiking from the foot of the mountain, where the waves beating against the rocks, and until the magnificent and told vision on its top.
"Not until Dacapo started recording the symphonies with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra under Thomas Dausgaard, were there truly credible, excellent versions of these works available. It's a glorious sixty minutes played exceedingly well and captured in glorious sound. Urgently recommended to anyone who likes romantic orchestral music.
Rued Langgaard's First Symphony should prove irresistible to anyone who likes big, colorful, late-Romantic music. Here is nothing but a very talented musician stretching his wings for the first time, looking forward to a life of limitless possibilities. Hearing him is a joy.
(10/10, Classics Today )
This performance is splendid, as is the SACD recording (...) the notes are also excellent. If you are willing to experiment, this may well become a favorite recording.
