Info zu Johannes Haarklou -Sommernatt
Soprano Linda Øvrebø and pianist Kristin Fossheim treat us to a delicious flower bouquet of romances and songs by Norwegian composer Johannes Haarklou (1847–1925). Haarklou's compositional output reflects his love for substantial musical forms like operas, oratorios, symphonies and concertos with solo instruments, where as the smaller works presented in this recording represent a just as creative branch of his oeuvre; many of them set to lyrics by some of the most important poets of the day. These are inspired settings, unpretentious but of shimmering beauty - feelings of joy in contrast to profound melancholy, nature and love, nocturnal moods and a Fairy-dance.
