Notes & Reviews:

With their fluctuation between folksong and art song, the works included in this release are all characteristic examples of the various developments and trends that this repertoire has undergone since 1880. Whether the vocal line is more or less authentic, as with Grainger, Kodaly and Britten, or merely composed in the style of folk music, as with Dvorak, Larsson and Hahn, this is repertoire that clearly holds a fascination for von Otter.
