Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

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 childhood piece Album Leaf to his last piano work, Piano Piece, E major (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.

Gramophone
Pianist Berit Johansen 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. The surround-sound option offers a fuller-bodied ambience in comparison with the conventional two-channel playback's relatively dry, close-up sound.
