Carl Nielsen, songs (sange)



Carl Nielsen, songs (sange)










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:
