Many thanks for your kind words -- and, yes, the comparison with Rued Langgaard is dead-on. I absolutely cherish his hyper-romantic music but have never been able to link the bizarre titles of his compositions to what I'm actually hearing. Not that it really matters. And with two excellent cycles of Langgaard's symphonies in the last 15 years, there's always hope someone will at least record a disc of some of Heinrich's massive scores (besides the slim New World offering). Unfortunately, we Americans do a pretty sorry job of championing our own composers. Maybe Naxos or Dutton, with Keith Lockhart conducting for the latter. This stuff seems right up his alley, though Griffiths certainly seems to have an affinity and passion for Heinrich's works. And, for what it's worth, I look forward to expanding my horizons with this group!
