Notes & Reviews:
"It is strange that when I write these simple melodies, it is as if I am not the composer - it is people from my childhood or the Danish people who want something through me." Thus said Carl Nielsen (1865-1931), who was devoted to renewing the Danish song tradition and whose melodies are still at the heart of Danish community song today. On this recording, Ars Nova Copenhagen presents a selection of Nielsen's most popular songs under conductor Michael Bojesen.
American Record Guide, July/August 2015
The warm, amiable sound of the small chamber group is aptly attuned to his music. As nice as everything is. Nielsen, for example, or a passion for all things Danish, or a keen interest in the Scandinavian choral tradition. If these describe your tastes, don't hesitate to seek this out.
