Scandinavian Songs Recitals
« on: March 13, 2017, 11:08:41 AM »
I recently enjoy listening to these two albums/boxes with northern songs. Can anyone recommend more records of Scandinavian (+ Finnish) songs?

This collection by the lovely Miah Persson is very nice:



If you're into Sibelius, this is quite indispensable:



And of course there's several more by Von Otter, these two being favourites:

Some very good recommendations there!

There is (though Danish and Swedish):




If you don't might a capella/choral, there are these:




Offenbach gets a raw deal in recordings considering his talent! For a discussion of this outstanding composer too little recorded: http://www.good-music-guide.com/community/index.php/topic,5572.

I enjoy this Danish 20th century recital.

I am now working on a discography of the works of Vagn Holmboe. Please visit and also contribute!

I think I have only two, the Von Otter/Grieg/DG shown already above and Bonney's "Diamonds in the Snow":

Struck by the sounds before the sun,
I knew the night had gone.
The morning breeze like a bugle blew
Against the drums of dawn.

These two song albums are fine as well, both on the Musicae Sveciae label.

Rangström was a specialist in composing songs, there are around 250 of them, and Stenhammar´s are fine as well.

And the album by Hynninen/Segerstam with Sibelius orchestrated songs on the Ondine label is hypnotizing, IMO.
