Symphonies vol. 1
Leif Kayser, composer

Aalborg Symphony Orchestra
Matthias Aeschbacher, conductor

The life of the Danish composer Leif Kayser (1919-2001) was devoted equally to the religious and the musical. However, after establishing himself early as one of the young hopes of Danish musical life, he broke off his musical career to become a Catholic priest. This release features Leif Kayser’s Second and Third Symphony. Both works are typified by the composer’s remarkable technical mastery and rich sonorous idiom that unites a great Danish tradition with the most exciting elements of the past currents in European music.

Anyone who loves Danish music, and Nielsen and Holmboe in particular, is going to be delighted with this discovery.
