About:

Poul Rovsing Olsen (1922-1982) wished for his music to be as close as possible to the listener, evident on this intimate recording of his songs for solo voice, featuring the successful Bruun Hyldig Duo. A student of Messiaen, Rovsing Olsen’s songs contain both French and Danish influences; the lyrics, however, come from all over Europe, including poems by William Blake, Rainer Maria Rilke, Charles Baudelaire, Pär Lagerkvist and more.
