Svend S. Schultz - Choral Songs
Format: COMPACT DISC
Rasmussen, Jonas; Akademisk Kor Århus
Svend Simon Schultz (1913-1998) is one of the most remarkable Danish composers and as a conductor he made a significant contribution to Danish songs, not least during his 30 years as head of the Danish Radio Chamber Choir. He was constantly composing and wrote music for movies, chamber ensemble and especially for choir. Svend S. Schultz made a stamp on Danish choral music which is still beaming today. His songs are known by every Dane and his production probably one of the most encompassing of all Danish composers. This is the first of a project to record all his nearly 90 choral songs, all of them musically and technically on the highest possible level. The brilliant Akademisk Kor Århus, conducted by Jonas Rasmussen, is now presenting volume 1 of 5 volumes. Each with a mix of songs and all with the full texts of the poems in the booklet.
