Concert: The Scent of Lindens and the Time of Roses

Tid: Wednesday, May 10, 7 PM
Sted: The Johannes Larsen Museum

Songs from the Gardens of the Romantic Movement.

Malena Rønnow, vocals, Anne Mette Stæhr, piano.

The seasons, the garden and its many sounds and scents have always inspired poets and composers. From the earliest signs of spring to the heavy magnificence of colour in the autumn, nature feeds our joy in love and our cheerfulness, or embraces our melancholy with its beauty and quietude.

“The Scent of Lindens and the Time of Roses” offers a choice plucking of lieder-songs from the Romantic period, where the listener has the chance to get very close both to feelings and to impressions of nature, in contrast to opera, for example, where the broad story is usually the central factor. The audience will be taken on a journey through the seasons with the different moods and flowers they each have to offer.

The songs are mostly taken from the German and Scandinavian late Romantic period, with songs of Brahms and Mahler, but also with more homegrown names like Nielsen and Lange-Müller.

The concert will last about 1 1/2 hours, including an intermission. Translations of the lyrics to Danish will be provided, and the music will be introduced throughout the concert.

Tickets: 100 kr.

Malena Rønnow

Originally from Funen, Malena Rønnow completed her masters with distinction at the music conservatory in Brussels, then continued her education with a masters in performance at the music conservatory in Odense. In her suitcase from Brussels, she brought a passion for the lieder genre’s versatility and beauty, as well as a broad repertoire. She works on spreading knowledge about lieder-singing through countless concerts around the country. In addition, Malena is often heard as an oratorio soloist, having sung the alto parts in, among others, Bach’s  Christmas Oratorio and B-minor Mass, Händel’s Messiah and Rossini’s Petite Messe Solonelle (Small, solemn mass). Alongside her solo career, Malena is a sought-after ensemble singer; she sings with the DR Concert Choir and at the Hedeland Opera. Among others, she has sung with the Funish Opera and with the Copenhagen Soloists.

Anne Mette Stæhr

Anne Mette Stæhr made her debut at the age of 23, coming from the soloist class at the Royal Danish Conservatory of Music. She has studied under some of the great masters  in Europe, like Andras Schiff and Dietrich Fischer-Diskau. Anne Mette’s interest and talent for  playing in ensembles and for chamber music have made her a much sought after accompanist. She works with, among others, the Jutland Opera, the Funen Opera, and the Aarhus Summer Opera. She has performed as a soloist with several Danish orchestras and has garnered a good many words of praise from critics for several of her CD-albums. Music from newer composers has a special place in Anne Mette’s work, and she has played many pieces in their first performances, works by many of the prominent composers of our time. She was a member of Figura Ensemble for 10 years.
