WorksSymphony no.1, 'Klippepastoraler' (Pastorals of the Rocks)
Rued Langgaard was an eccentric outsider in Danish music lifelife, who took his Late Romantic tonal idiom to highly original extremes.
Langgaard’s Symphony no.1, ‘Cliffside Pastorals’ is one of his most comprehensive works and one of the most ambitious Danish symphonies, more in line with tendencies of the time in Central Europe.
The Symphony was completed when Langgaard was only 17 years old.
The work expresses a mountain ascent. It is also religiously symbolic; Langgaard is the prophet who shows the way to spiritual development.
No orchestra in neither Copenhagen nor Stockholm was interested in performing it. Instead, Langgaard managedto hand over the score to the Berliner Philharmoniker, who gave the first performance at a concert with a full Langgaard programme in 1913.
Now Langgaard’s First Symphony has returned to Berlin. In connection to three highly praised and sold-out concerts, the Berliner Philharmoniker and Sakari Oramo have recorded the work.
Sakari Oramo already has Langgaard under his skin. His recording of Langgaard’s Symphonies 2 & 6 (2018) with the Vienna Philharmonic received a Gramophone Award.
