Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) was an odd, lonely figure in Danish music. His 16 symphonies make up a thought-provoking, original contribution to the history of the symphony.

The last two symphonies are both brief, but are musically very different. In No. 15 we find modernist features, while No. 16 can be called a personal testament in the spirit of Romanticism.

The CD concludes with a couple of early orchestral pieces and three world premiere recordings of late works.

This is the final disc in Dacapo’s successful and highly acclaimed series of Langgaard’s symphonies recorded by Danish National Symphony Orchestra and Thomas Dausgaard.
