Description: These symphonies need no introduction for Records International collectors. This new release is being offered because who would have ever thought, way back when Danacord were doing their Langgaard symphony series with a Bulgarian orchestra, that we’d ever be hearing the frickin’ Vienna Philharmonic playing Rued Langgaard!!!@!# One might say that the retrogade, ultra-conservative pieces he wrote would naturally have fitted a central European orchestra, but this? Wow! Oh, Unnoticed Morning Stars? It’s a movement from his Symphony No. 14 which the composer noted could be played on its own. German-English texts. Anu Komsi (soprano), Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra; Sakari Oramo.
