In this series of world premiere recordings of the symphonic music of Knudåge Riisager (1897-1974), you get to know the charming Danish composer through a genre he once tried to 'kill off', yet at the same time refused to abandon.

The Fourth and Fifth Symphonies, recorded here along with the Sinfonia concertante and the entertaining Summer Rhapsody, show Riisager as a searching, unprejudiced composer for whom the classical form types, despite all opposition, kept their attraction and fascination.
