Esben Tange, liner notes, Langgaard: Music of the Abyss:

“Allan Gravgaard Madsen’s transcription for the Esbjerg Ensemble’s members adds new dimensions to this inner tension. […] The restless manic repetitions in the second movement have a more all-encompassing character because of the strengthened instrumental setting.”
