5.0 out of 5 stars Riisager Symphonic Edition vol. 1 November 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
The Estonian-born Danish composer Knudage Riisager (1897-1974) was a pioneer of the Neo-Classicist style in his native country, yet he is probably unkown to most concert-goers outside Denmark. His music seems virtually never to be programmed in England or the USA, but perhaps concerts in the Scandinavian and Baltic countries feature his works. For those interested in exploring beyond the neoclassical world of Busoni, Francaix, Hindemith, Prokofiev, Satie, and Stravinsky, this CD music offers an opportunity to sample some of Riisager's early works; all were composed between 1918 and 1930. His First Symphony (1925) is described as virtuosic, and his "Four Danish Pictures," published as four separate works, each with its own opus number, are both lively and humorous. This CD is billed as "The Symphonic Edition, Volume 1," implies that further volumes will follow. Conductor Bo Holten coaxes sympathetic, detailed playing from the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra members, and the recorded sound is excellent.
Recommended for adventurous neoclassical-period lovers! For those wishing to sample the music of Riisager before buying this CD, examples of a few of his compositions are available on the Internet.
