Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) was a dreamer by nature. This solo piano album presents his wondrous world through a handful of significant world premiere recordings, representing a cross-section through Langgaard’s life as a composer - from the little thoughtful childhood piece Album Leaf to his very last piano piece – Piano Piece, E major – from 1951.

Alongside key works like Adorazione and Music of the Abyss, this album also presents the first complete recording of the cycle Summer Holiday in Blekinge which was left unfinished by the composer.

Gramophone Magazine

September 2011

“Tange has become a more confident and dynamically empowered Langgaard interpreter since her 2005 release devoted to the composer's piano music, and seems more temperamentally attuned to the keyboard-writing's high quirk quotient and ear-catching inventiveness.”
