Music of the Spheres is a symphonic work of great complexity, calling for a large orchestra, organ and choir, a supporting (distant) orchestra including a soprano voice, and a further piano on which the strings are played directly rather than via the keys. For this new and important recording, Dausgaard couples Music of the Spheres with two later works by Langgaard - The Time of the End and From the Deep - bringing an overview to the composer's music over a period of 35 years. Thomas Dausgaard and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra will be performing the UK premiere of Music of the Spheres at this year's Proms on 11th August.

5 - Music of the Spheres - Nick - 16/02/2013
I haven't heard this interpretation yet but Music of the Sphere's is one of the most remarkable pieces of orchestral music I know. What is most remarkable is that it was written in 1918. Hearing it for the first time you think it is John Adams but it is not 'like' anything else. On first hearing, it moved me as much as when I first heard the slow movement of Schubert's Death and the Maiden quartet 40 years ago - totally different music but same emotion. You feel you are in touch with something way out of this world. How come we can hear Vaughn Williams (cow pat school of backwards looking English music) but not this brilliant Dane who was writing at the same time but shunned by the musical establishment of North West Europe. Shame on it!
