Oh, you know that dream - you know that song cover

Music by: Edvard Grieg, Carl Nielsen and Ottorino Respighi.

Soloist: Anne Margrethe Dahl.

Conductor: Frans Rasmussen.

The song cycle Haugtussa, opus 67, originates from Grieg's most recent period (1895-98) and must be described as some of the best and most valuable from the hand of the small (155cm) composer.

Music for five poems by JP Jacobsen. In 1891, Carl Nielsen moved into a new field for his art: he set music, opus 4, to five poems by JP Jacobsen.

In Carl Nielsen's Opus 4 songs he moves often and rapidly through several keys, and in Seraillets Have he achieves in the piano voice, as later in the Alladin music, a kind of oriental color. Irmelin Rose is undoubtedly the best known and most beloved of the early songs.

Cinque Liriche by Ottorino Respighi. Respighi had an introverted side, and he wrote his Cinque Liriche in 1917 for the sake of his wife, composer, and singer Elsa Respighi.
