Friedrich Kuhlau

Elverhøj

Bodil Gøbel, Gurli Plesner, Mogens Schmidt Johansen, Danish National Concert Choir, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, John H. Frandsen

The German born composer Friedrich Kuhlau is one of the main figures in early Danish Romaticism. Several of his works for the theatre, not least the music for the play Elverhøj which was composed for a royal wedding celebration, secured him a prominent position in musical life and influenced the later development of Danish music. Since its premiere in 1828 Elverhøj has been performed almost a thousand times at the Royal Danish Theatre alone.
