Winter dreamland

Arianna Savall, Petter Udland Johansen and their friends take us to wintery Scandinavia with folk ballads and dances all about fairies and trolls, snow queens and elves. At the centre is the Dream Poem, which tells of young Olav, who falls into a deep sleep and finds himself on a mystical journey between the here and now and the hereafter. The programme ends with Edvard Grieg’s Våren and, at last, the transition from the deep still of winter to the new life of spring.


Traditional Norwegian winter songs from the medieval ballad “Draumkvedet” to Edvard Grieg’s “Våren”
