Rued Langgaard: Strygekvartetter Vol. 3
06 April 2015
Music of Danish composer Rued Langaard (1893–1959) is featured on a DaCapo issue, the third and final issueof his string quartets. All of these were written early in his career, 1914–1918 and several were revised later. Many of Langgaard’s impressive large-scale works are available on SACD in superb recordings including some of his symphonies and other major works for chorus and orchestra—check our Surround Sound INDEX. These gentle quartets are far removed from the composer’s grand, dramatic later works, and these fine performances, beautifully recorded, are an important addition to the catalog.
