Riisager: The Symphonic Edition
Riisager: Primavera, Concert Overture, Op 31 (5:43)
Aarhus Symphony Orchestra / Bo Holten
“You never know where you have Riisager: he is the man of surprises and caprices,” wrote a Danish newspaper after the first performance of Knudåge Riisager’s Symphony No. 3 in 1932. This album presents a collection of highly original and imaginative orchestral works by Riisager from the 1920s and 30s, all in world premiere recordings by the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra and conductor Bo Holten.
