The Lost Chord: January 15 - Rued Awakenings

rued_langgaard.jpg

Even by composer standards, Rued Langgaard was a little bit of a strange bird. Despite a promising start – including a symphony performed by the Berlin Philharmonic – his personal and creative eccentricities worked against him. He would die in Ribe, the oldest town in Denmark, very far from the musical capital of Copenhagen, in 1952. His reputation would not begin to gain traction for another 16 years. In all, Langgaard composed over 400 works. Hear two of them, including the ambitious Music of the Spheres, this Sunday at 10 pm.

Ross Amico is program host, and host of Picture Perfect which airs Saturdays at 6 pm and The Lost Chord which airs Sundays at 10 pm.
