While Danish Romantic violin concertos aren’t exactly ten a penny, these three important examples of the genre firmly establish that the great Romantic violin concerto certainly had a place in Danish music.

These three rarely-performed works are presented on this release by one of Denmark’s absolutely finest soloists, Christina Åstrand, here in good Finnish company with the Tampere Philharmonic and its chief conductor John Storgårds.

Niels Wilhelm Gade: Violin Concerto in D minor, Op. 56

I. Allegro con fuoco

II. Romanze: Andantino espressivo

III. Rondo scherzando: Allegro, ma non troppo

Peter Erasmus Lange-Muller: Violin Concerto in C major, Op. 69

I. Moderato

II. Allegretto sostenuto

III. Allegro giocoso

Rued Langgaard: Violin Concerto, BVN 289

Violin Concerto, BVN 289

Gramophone Magazine

December 2009

“Christina Åstrand plays all three works with consummate skill, sweetness of tone and a feel for line. John Storgårds, himself no mean violinist, secures sympathetic accompaniments from the Tampere Philharmonic, and with Dacapo's excellent sound these accounts are now the front runners for each work.”
