Hartmann: Vølvens spådom

About the Album – DACAPO

J.P.E. Hartmann (1805-1900) was a central figure in the Danish music of the nineteenth century. He composed in all genres and his music spans three cultural epochs. It was however in Danish National Romanticism that J.P.E.
Hartmann achieved his most striking compositional results and the choral work Vølvens Spådom (Prophecy of the Seeress) is one of his undisputed masterpieces. The work is typified by Hartmann’s special “Nordic tone” which, down to our own time, has remained part of the great legacy of Danish music.

In 2006 Vølvens Spådom was chosen as one of the 12 works that represent the Danish Cultural Canon.
