In the works by Grieg, we wanted there to be unity in the language. So To brune ojne and Jeg elsker dig, by the Danish poet Andersen, are sung in Norwegian. The songs of op. 48, settings of various German poems, were translated by the poet Nordahl Rolfsen, who was a close friend of Grieg's. And I have chosen to sing his translations of the two German poems, by Goethe and von Bodenstedt: En drøm (Ein Traum) and I rosentiden (Zur Rosenzeit). They are usually sung in German. In Grieg there is no tragedy, but instead a gentle Nordic melancholy. We feel this in the children's games of Killingdans, in Solveig's song as she awaits the man she loves (Solveigs Sang), in the beating of the lover's heart and his anxiety, which are compared to the river's dangerous current in Med en vandlige, the end of love compared to faded roses in I rosentiden, the death of a friend, compared to the swan's song in En svane. In Sibelius, on the other hand, nature is brutal and love is passionate. Never has the personification of nature been as present as it is in these songs. Here, everything evokes the end of winter and the gushing waters of spring (Marssno, Men min fagel), betrayal (Se n har jag, Flickan kom ifran), despair and weariness with life, conveyed by the image of a rose tree growing in the heart (Svarta rosor); I thought it was interesting to include the song En slanda, in which the music, rather than the poem itself, evokes a dragonfly, symbolising the pleasures of life which come to distract the mind of a person who is lost in thought. It reveals a different type of musicality in Sibelius, which occurs again a little later on in Luonnotar, a symphonic poem to words from the Kalevala. The idea of completing this recording with Debussy's very sensual evocations of amorous desire expressed in the three Chansons de Bilitis came quite naturally. Nature and desire are brought together: the tresses, the bay trees; the singing of the green frogs in the darkness, the lost belt; the pale sky, the satyrs' footprints in the snow, the ice of the Naiads. Apparition is for me one of Mallarmé's finest poems, and in his setting Debussy conveys perfectly the ecstatic yet unsettling feelings caused by love at first sight. We chose to end this recording with Beau Soir. This infinitely gentle song invites us to contemplate nature and the natural cycle of water and of human life.
