15 Songs to Poems By Gustaf Froding on CD

The poems by Gustaf Fröding are well known to Swedish poetry and music lovers and many of them have been set to music before. Fröding belonged to the same generation of authors "the 1890's" that also included Nobel Prize winners Selma Lagerlöf, Verner von Heidenstam and Erik Axel Karlfeldt. Fröding was and is probably the most popular of them all. These fifteen Fröding songs cover a wide spectrum of emotions, from folksy humoristic rural stories via satirical portraits, good-natured but biting to deeply philosophical and serious personal and universal analyses. Matti Borg varies the expressivity of the music depending on the content of the texts. The very first song, for instance, Jonte Och Brunte, describes graphically the old farm-hand and the aged horse on their way home from the field at the end of the day.
