The world premiere recording of Per Norgard's Seventh Symphony is being released by Dacapo, with a new recording of the Third Symphony, also by Thomas Dausgaard with the Danish
National Symphony Orchestra.
Regarded as the leading contemporary voice in Danish music, Per Norgard (b. 1932) sees his symphonies
as 'reports on the state of the universe'. The new work is a constantly surprising tapestry of interweaving
motifs and innovations, reaching for coherence in a web of disparate energies.
Norgard has always had an intense interest in the music of Sibelius, regarding his work as highly innovative, in
polyphony and rhythmic displacements, and in tensions between details and overall form. These influences
are especially evident in his Third Symphony, regarded as one of the classic works of modern Danish music.
