Danish National Choir
Danish National Symphony Orchestra
Per Nørgård’s symphonies are milestones in the music of our time. On this unique CD we hear a new recording of the famous Third Symphony, a watershed work of the seventies that pays tribute to the unifying force of the universe.
The new Seventh Symphony is a dynamic, highly complex work coloured by much use of percussion and a myriad of impulses. Once more it shows new aspects of Nørgård as the constantly developing master of Scandinavian music. This is the world première recording.
The Seventh symphony is the main LIVE feature at the concert for the grand opening of the new and state-of-the-art concert hall in DR Byen in Copenhagen, the National Broadcast’s new home. This will be January 17th.
The conductor Thomas Dausgaard is a true connoisseur and good friend of Nørgård and here together with the Danish National Choir and Symphony Orchestra interprets these wonderful symphonies with stunning flamboyance.
