6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Nicholas Casley TOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Aug 2008
Format: Audio CD
My interest in the symphonies and other music of Carl Nielsen led me to explore some of the other Danish symphonists of his era. Hence, this CD found its way into my collection.

The FOURTH symphony, subtitled `Leaf-Fall' is 26 minutes long. It opens with a `rustle in the forest', except that what we here are tutti chords. Langgaard was an admirer of Liszt, and indeed this symphony of 1916 is more in the manner of a symphonic poem in the high-romantic line of Liszt-Wagner-Strauss than that of Brahms-Dvorak-Nielsen. However, there is a certain distinctive use of woodwind in Langgaard that is very pastoral, very English, very Nielsen but devoid of the latter's trope of short repetitive pulses. Some of the woodwind passages in this symphony are very magical such as the allegretto pastorale and the passage marked `tired'. The symphony ends with a resolution of sorts.

The FIFTH, subtitled `Steppe-Nature', lasts sixteen minutes and is in my opinion the weakest of the three. It was written in 1917-18 but revised 1931. It does not have a Russian feel, rather it is more in tune with what the composer wrote afterwards in brackets: `a summer's legendary play'. The opening here, by contrast, is very much like Nielsen with alternate two-note and three-note pulses. Also like Nielsen, he relieves the tension of a climax by means of a quiet and unassuming riff, as if to say "and life goes on".

The opening returns in the middle of the symphony. The music expresses moods rather than structural development: one section ends and another begins. Three minutes before the end we suddenly commence a Sibelian-toned, classical-inspired dance which ends as quickly as it began.

Sibelius distilled 9 Mar 2008
By David Thierry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
These remarkable and lovely symphonies do not follow the conventional development one might find in Nielsen or Sibelius, Dvorak or Brahms. They are more a stream of consiouness that evolves and flows, more subtle, less obviously dramatic, less colorfully orchestrated particularly less use of the woodwinds, a more subdued use of brass, more a feeling of being propelled forward toward an inevitable conclusion. More like Bruckner in tone but without Bruckner's somewhat contrived effort to make an epic statement while maintaining it's own seriousness and gravity. These works are like musical essays. Very attractive and appealing.
