Langgaard’s answer to Nielsen’s Inextinguishable Symphony. Typical insane but fascinating symphony by him. One of his best, I think. Packs a huge punch.
Sad but true fact: only one Langgaard symphony has ever been played in the US
Was it you who conducted it, Chris? Which one was it? Thanks for telling me about Langgaard.
Yeah. I was so surprised when the publisher told me that fact. Perhaps another has been done since 2010. I did the wonderfully bizarre 5th Symphony which is only 15 minutes long. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol8r7kuxAkI
