About

In the veritable musical frenzy that struck Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) near the end of his life, he composed several violin sonatas – a genre he had not paid much attention to since his early days. In this second in a series of three recordings presenting Langgaard’s complete works for violin and piano the award-winning violinist Gunvor Sihm and the Langgaard expert Berit Johansen Tange perform the Violin Sonata no.1, composed in the course of four days in mid-June – when Langgaard was vacationing in Southern Sweden, and Langgaard’s last work for violin, the Andante religioso, in addition to the Sunday Sonata, one of Langgaard’s most bizarre and unpredictable compositions.
