Abstract:

Carl Nielsen's Voice is the first study to present an in-depth analysis of the work of the Danish composer and conductor Carl Nielsen (1865-1931), which comprises nearly 300 songs. The volume offers a comprehensive account of Carl Nielsen as a composer viewed from the point of view of a musicologist with an international background and with considerable insight into Danish language and culture. This is the first time in the reception history of Carl Nielsen that a large portion of his songs is examined in relation to both his own production and in a broader cultural historical context. In addition to this analysis, Anne-Marie Reynolds provides a stylistic comparative examination of the songs and two of his most important works, the first symphony and the opera Masquerade. This is done with a view to demonstrating that the opposition between Carl Nielsen as a composer of songs and Carl Nielsen as the composer of ̀great' works is only a seeming opposition. With this book it is now possible for Nielsen enthusiasts living beyond the Danish borders to familiarise themselves with the genre that until now - for linguistic reasons - by and large has been reserved for Danes, and which is rightly considered to be one of the composer's most important contributions to the Danish musical heritage. --Book Jacket.
