Nightingale String Quartet
Rued Langgaard’s string quartets are passionate works from the eccentric composer’s youth. This recording series presents all 9 quartets together for the first time in the distinctly dramatic interpretation of the prizewinning Nightingale String Quartet. With this release we have reached the world premiere recording of Rosengaardsspil (Rose Garden Play), which with the other works on the CD bears the fascinating marks of the composer’s great unrequited youthful love during a summer holiday long ago in Sweden.
