The composer C.F.E. Horneman (1840-1906) was acclaimed by his famous fellow-countryman Carl Nielsen as "the bright flame and lambent fire of Danish music." The sensitive composer himself had to struggle with a fiery temperament, and as a result of a succession of unfortunate circumstances his overall oeuvre was very small. This album presents a collection of Horneman's magnificent orchestral works, all of which have a background in mythological and historical dramas: the Ouverture Heroique of his youth, and the three major mature works: Kalanus, Thamyris and the Gurre Suite.
