“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.”

Carl Nielsen 

Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) 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.

  • Lidt for nydelig Carl Nielsen

    Der er tale om en smuk og væsentlig udgivelse, hvor min eneste indvending er, at Ars Nova Copenhagen synger for nydeligt.
    4 ud af 6 stjerner.
