Peter A Heise: Tornerose & Bergliot

Peter A Heise: Tornerose & Bergliot


Heise:

Tornerose (The Sleeping Beauty)

Dramatic poem by Christian Richardt for solo voices and orchestra

Michael Kristensen (tenor), Stephen Milling (bass), Helle Charlotte Pedersen (soprano)

Canzone Choir

Bergliot

Poem by Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson for mezzo-soprano and orchestra

Marianne Rørholm (mezzo-soprano)


Heise holds a place of honour in the pantheon of Danish music for his "romances" and for the national opera Drot og Marsk (King and Marshal). It is often overlooked that Heise was an internationally oriented composer, and that he also composed a symphony and a score of outstanding chamber works and concert pieces as Bergliot and Tornerose. In Heise's several hundred romances melody, harmony, accompaniment and the choice of texts together reach the zenith of this genre in Denmark. He died far too early at the age of 49. If Heise's romances had been written to German texts, he would have been sure of international fame.

Danish National Vocal Ensemble, Michal Schønwandt

The Danish composer Peter Heise (1830-79) was a master of writing for singing voices. In his quartets and choral songs for male voices we meet Romanticism in its clearest form with songs about women, art, nature and his native country. The gentle, pure tone of the music is excellently handled by the male voices of the Danish National Vocal Ensemble and Choir and not least by the conductor Michael Schønwandt, who has cherished a lifelong love of Danish Golden Age music.
