"Nothing easier than to beguile a girl's heart By the mild scent of plum blossoms To the depths By love song and flute playing!"

Love and nature mysticism are the major themes of the two song cycles Haugtussa op. 67 by Edvard Grieg and "Japanese Spring" by Ludvig Irgens Jensen.

Eira Sjaastad Huse (mezzo-soprano) and Max Nyberg (piano) present the two most renowned song cycles from Norway.

In addition to "Haugtussa," which has already been performed several times in our house, the song collection "Japanese Spring" by Ludvig Irgens-Jensen, written a good 20 years later, will be performed for the first time in Leipzig. The texts of this cycle go back to rephrasings of Japanese poems of the 9th and 18th centuries by Hans Bethge, who also provided the material for cycles such as "Das Lied von der Erde" by Gustav Mahler.
