Symphonies 2 & 6
“These are magnificent performances” Gramophone
★★★★★ Fono Forum ★★★★★ BBC Music Magazine ★★★★ The Guardian
“I feel each of my symphonies is a whole continent in itself,” the Danish composer Per Nørgård (b. 1932) has said. His music stems from an insatiable urge to explore the phe no mena of the world and the possibilities of music, and his eight symphonies stand as milestones along the course of six decades. This recording with the Oslo Philharmonic conducted by John Storgårds presents Per Nørgård’s Second Symphony, in which the composer unfolds his famous ‘infinity principle’ euphorically and almost psychedelically, and his Sixth Symphony, in which the mature composer proves more exploratory and playful than ever.Per NørgårdSymphony No. 6 "At the End of the Day"
