Notes and Editorial Reviews

Paul Rovsing Olsen (1922-1982) wished for his music to be as close as possible to the listener, evident on this intimate recording of his songs for solo voice, featuring the successful Bruun Hyldig Duo. A student of Messiaen, Rovsing Olsen’s songs contain both French and Danish influences; the lyrics, however, come from all over Europe, including poems by William Blake, Ranier Maria Rilke, Charles Baudelaire, Par Lagerkvist and more. A critically acclaimed duo, Bruun Hyldig Duo has been highly praised for their collaboration on two previous Messiaen releases. “Her beauty of tone is matched by the richness and power needed for these remarkable works,” (BBC Music Magazine on Bruun) “Rovsing Olsen is a composer of “refined sensibility.” Read more (Gramophone) Read less
