Deeply expressive Norwegian music. The composer gives an image to the performer: She didn't weep. She just sat still and stared out. She began to hum gently, then to sing a little higher and then to sing this song in a clear voice.
For this edition Kjerulf's song has been prepared for a Venova solo with an optional backing track [harp and strings].
Halfdan Kjerulf [1815 - 1868] was the first classical composer in Norway to use folk music in his works, and he was a great influence on the music of Edvard Grieg.
