Lange-Müller and Heise


Inger Dam-Jensen, soprano
Christen Stubbe Teglbjærg, piano

Peter Arnold Heise, composer
Peter Erasmus Lange-Müller, composer

The songs with piano accompaniment - or the "romance" as it was also called - was the best loved and most widespread musical form in the Danish romantic period of the 19th century. The three greatest song composers are usually reckoned to be C.E.F. Weyse, Peter Heise and P.E. Lange-Müller. Weyse stands for Viennese classicism and the beginnings of the romantic movement. Heise and Lange-Müller represent the peak of that movement. Heise's output in particular is a high point of development of Danish song.
