    Eddan

    I've been listening to Mats Wendt's monumental "Eddan, the Invincible Sword of the Elf Smith" via streaming links to his website for years now, waiting impatiently for it to be made commercially available. He has, after 9 years, finally completed and released this work (16 + hours!). It was premiered in Reykjavik and large portions were performed at Bayreuth. He explains that he has set to music a work by Viktor Rydberg embracing "pre-christian Scandinavian mythology from the beginning to the end of the world (Ragnarök) and beyond." Truly fascinating for those who love the sagas and classical music which brings to mind Wagner and the German romantics.

    Samples

    Yes, and you can actually listen to it all in various streaming formats at http://www.eddan.net/

    I just bought and downloaded the first section; if you like classical music or the sagas I think you'll enjoy it!

    Tviett

    Thanks for the recommendation; I am ashamed to say I had never heard of him. From what I've now heard, I'd like to listen to more! I am fond of Scandanavian composers, but have usually heard only the most famous here: Grieg, Sibelius, and Rautavaara.

    I know it's been a while, but I would still like to strongly endorse Eddan as an epic work in the spirit of Wagner. The composer deserves our support for this brilliant homage to the Norse myths.

    Huge samples still available!
