In this series of world premiere recordings of the symphonic music of Knudåge Riisager (1897-1974), you get to know the charming Danish composer through a genre he once tried to ’kill off ’, yet at the same time refused to abandon. The Fourth and Fifth Symphonies, recorded here along with the Sinfonia concertante and the entertaining Summer Rhapsody, show Riisager as a searching, unprejudiced composer for whom the classical form types, despite all opposition, kept their attraction and fascination.

"... All this music is unchallenging and easy to listen to on a first hearing. Most of it bears repeated listening too. If I find Bo Holten and the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra slightly unsmiling in the Sinfonia Concertante, the remainin performances seen even to surpass this in Vol 2. They are splendidly recorded. We are fortunate indeed to have such worthwhile music available on disc, especially since hearing it in the concert hall is virtually impossible. Highly recommended."
