Review

As with the Hamerik symphonies, Dausgaard and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra start one's listening in 'at the top': acquire both of these sets and begin to get to grips with the fascinating and absorbing musical expanse of Danish Symphonism. --International Record Review

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Langgaard's Music of the Spheres since purchasing the Chandos recording back in 1997. After being overwhelmed by a live performance of the same at the 2010 proms I decided to splash out on this boxed set of his symphonies. Glorious! Why are these never performed? Since it has taken the world outside Denmark around 80 years to realise the genius of Nielsen, it should not be that surprising. Plus, Langgaard really is VERY eccentric. His symphonies range from the Mahlerian 1 hour grandeur of his 1st symphony (premiered by the Berlin Philharmonic, no less) to the 6 minutes of symphony 11. His range of ideas is bewildering, but always clinging to tonality, at a time when this was becoming less fashionable in Europe. Anyone with an open mind should hear this music. Together with the new Dacapo recording of Music of the Spheres recorded by the same forces, the CDs make a case for Langgaard to be recognised as one of the great orchestral composers of the 20th century.

The cds arrived on time. There are 17 symphonies! I read a review on a classical music site suggesting "a way through" the symphonies and I am following that. Started with 11, loved it! Then number 1 which is amazing as it was written when he was so young and has a Nielsen sound to it! I have listened to numbers 4,5,6,9 and 10 all have someting that makes me want to listen again.
Recordings and sound are good. If you like big romantic sounds then this music is worth exploring.

Having only recently discovered Langaard I have become a massive admirer. He has been cited as being flawed verbose etc etc by the critics. Without these wonderful works my collection of music would be the poorer.
I reccomend that you purchase this and treat yourself to a feast of Late Late Romantic utterences.
He leaves some other composers way behing
