Notes and Editorial Reviews

In the veritable musical frenzy that struck Rued Langgaard(1893-1952) near the end of his life he composed several violin sonatas –a genre he had not paid much attention to since his early days. In this first in a series of three recordings presenting Langgaard’s complete works for violin and piano the award-winning violinist Gunvor Sihm and the Langgaard expert Berit Johansen Tange perform three late, incitingly Romantic works in addition to the unfinished sonata of Langgaard’s youth, which is given its world premiere recording. Gunvor Sihm was born in 1986 and started to play the violin at age 5 with Jan Mathiesen at Aarhus Music School. Through the years Gunvor has won several prizes, most recently the 1st prize at RDAM’s violin Read more competition. Previously she has won a Gold medal at Berlingske Tidendes Classical Music Competition, 1st prize at Jakob Gades Violin Competition, Talent prize at “Young Classical Musicians”, 2nd prize at Oeresund’s Soloist Competition, and a Fine Arts Award from Interlochen Arts Camp in Michigan.
