This extremely short orchestral piece was composed 7 May
1948 in Ribe. Exactly between 5:45 and 6:45 in the morning
(“normal time”). Rued Langgaard indicates the time of day
in both the sketch for the composition and the fair copy of the
score. Fair-copying of the score took place on 10 May, 4:30 to
6:00 in the morning (“summertime”), after, it should be noted,
Langgaard had taken his obligatory morning constitutional in
Ribe (he suffered from insomnia and arose in the early morning
hours). After the work’s final measure Langgaard wrote:
“Short, razor-sharp line of thought in music excluding all
extraneous ‘developmental’ fussiness and with lightning fast
movement in all the parts”. The same day, 10 May, he sent the
score as program suggestion to the State Broadcasting Service
in Copenhagen under the title Denmark’s Radio, Fandfare for
Grand Orchestra – “fandfare” as a sarcastically meant spelling
mistake with an allusion to “the Devil” (fanden = the Devil in
Danish). Langgaard had, as is known, an ambivalent relationship
with the State Broadcasting Service. The work was not accepted
and the score was therefore returned to Langgaard, who
nevertheless submitted it again. The State Broadcasting Service
clearly regarded the piece as a joke from the composer’s side.
When Langgaard died in 1952 the unperformed score was to
be found in broadcasting corporation’s music
