In the mid-40s the isolation in which Langgaard had long found himself led to unexpected artistic consequences. Bizarre, absurd and self-contradictory features added new dimensions to his music, and the improvised and eccentric were intensified. After the inspired Symphony No. 10 Hin Torden-Bolig (Yon Hall of Thunder) the tendency is evident in Symphony No. 11 Ixion with just one theme - and four extra tubas that take part at the end as a kind of 'anti-soloists' in the just six-minute-long composition.
