Notes & Reviews:

"Rued Langgaard was a loon, but a compelling loon. His Fourteenth Symphony has fanciful titles like "Radio-Caruso and forced energy" and "Dads' rush to the office", but the music is retro-Romantic, with just enough off-kilter sounds to make you question whether his is affection homage or straight caricature. Symphony No. 13, "Belief in Wonders", is simply a half hour of lovely music, tuneful and tinged with nostalgia. Its predecessor, Helsingborg, with the emphasis on the "Hell", dates from a time when the composer despaired of, well, everything. It lasts a mere seven nihilistic minutes, but somehow manages to be fun all the same... In short, if you've been collecting this excellent series then you need this disc. The performances are uniformly outstanding, beautifully played, and excitingly conducted by Thomas Dausgaard, and the sonics are terrific." -Classics Today (10/10)
