**********************************************************

 

I don’t understand why Danish composer Carl Nielsen (1865-1931) is not better known outside of his native land. He has gained recognition, thanks to performances by conductors such as Leonard Bernstein, but …

Nielsen’s output of songs was prolific and outstanding.  He composed over 290 songs and hymns.

Posted here are:

Nielsen, “Twelve Songs” (Tolv Sange), copied from an old LP of mine

This paper was written by me for a Spanish course at Columbia University taught by Professor Ricardo Florit.

The playwrights discussed in the paper are Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio (1562–1635) and Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600–1681).
