    Rued Langgaard (1893-1952) was a Danish organist and composer. He was the son of composer and pianist Siegfried Lang says. At age 11, he caused a stir with his improvisations on the new organ at the Marble Church and was an early (1917) described as an antisocial weirdo. Langgaard preferred a late romantic music language that shows some influence of Richard Strauss, but also wrote radically experimental pieces. He was opposed by many contemporary trends in the Danish church music and felt an opposition compared to the leading composer Carl Nielsen. Langgaard searched for 20 years positions as organist, but was passed over until he was quite late in life was "sent into internal exile" as cathedral organist in Ribe.

    Rued Langgaard composed several large orchestral works. Although he was a Protestant, was Langgaard attracted to both Catholicism, theosophical philosophy and mysticism. For him, the music and the Christian intellectual baggage two sides of the same world. His music also bears the titles Pit Music, Flood Sol, the Antichrist and the Music of the Spheres. Opera Antichrist is the first Danish opera released on DVD in May 2005. Langgaards own text for the opera shows a peculiar language. The opera is recorded in the Danish product.
