A Nordic Love Saga with Josefine Andersson, mezzo-soprano
A Nordic love saga, is a tribute to the Nordic vocal treasure, which emphasizes the Nordic tone language with the theme of love. Josefine Andersson and Daniel Beskow began its partnership two years ago and formed the duo Nordic-light duo, as both share the same glowing love for this music. Its sound colours, images and texts that burn of love but often have an underlying shadow of sadness and melancholy. In the music you notice by the Nordic light and the clear air of our nature. It turns out particularly clearly in the composers’ selection of poems in which love is often reflected through nature. The fragile life that so quickly turns from youth into death. The composers captures landscapes greatness with broad strokes and the small details such as the ripples on the ocean or a flower petals with the thin brush. In the program you can hear among others Stenhammar, Sibelius, Grieg, Nystroem, the Frumerie etc.
