Rued Langgaard: Rose Garden Songs / Tamás Vetö

Notes & Reviews:

The music of the romantic outsider Rued Langgaard encompasses the whole range from Romantic to Modernist styles, and is by turn monumental, expressive, and visionary. The bulk of his modest output for mixed choir a cappella is found on this CD - an earlier release, which is now presented in remastered and improved SACD sound quality.

"Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) is best known...as a symphonist and iconoclast whose romantic style of composition set him at odds with the Danish musical establishment...This program presents nearly all his works for a cappella choir. Not a note of it was published in the composer's lifetime...there's not an unattractive sound anywhere in the program; and as the odes to love, solitude, and ebbing Scandinavian summers roll by you'll wonder how any musical fraternity worth its salt could have given this guy a hard time. Aided by handsome SACD sonics, the choir sounds gorgeous from start to finish. Informative notes and full translations are included." - American Record Guide
