• New CD: Fini Henriques, vol. 2

    13th of March 2016 · tags:

    Baritone and lecturer at the Academy Lars Thodberg Bertelsen, has along with former lecturer Thomas Trondheim just released their vol. 2 CD with songs and romances by the Danish composer Fini Henriques (1867-1940) - a somewhat overlooked figure in Danish music history. Vol. 1 was released last year.

    In his lifetime Henriques was especially known as a violinist and conductor. He appeared as a soloist throughout the country and he was a great entertainer and an equilibristic violinist. His music is distinctly romantic, without any influence by all the new things happening with music around 1900.

    The new CD presents six song cycles with songs and romances, written in the years 1892 to 1902. The texts are from the same time or older and they largely reflect the romantic idiom. The CD is published by CDKlassisk and can be ordered at the Academy: mail@musikkons.dk
