Description: The Danish genre of the serenade or romance is celebrated in this collection of excerpts from incidental music to plays and, in the case of Nielsen, operas. Short like the Danish summer, these sparkling little pieces are full of joy in the brief summer, romantic longing, and happiness mixed with melancholy. Danish texts. Mathias Hedegaard (tenor), Ditte Højgaard Andersen (soprano), Royal Naval Choir Copenhagen, Danish Radio Sinfonietta; Adam Fischer.
