DrÝmmen on Glade Jul 'A Dream about Silent Night', FS34
EnglishFranÁaisDeutsch
A Dream about ‘Silent Night’ (Drømmen om ‘Glade Jul’) is an improvisatory paraphrase based on the famous Christmas carol, which swiftly departs from the original melody and explores new, more unusual musical territory. Nielsen’s title, ‘Dream’, is significant, suggesting parallels with his orchestral tone poem Saga-drøm, which likewise contains passages of a strangely fantastical and arabesque-like nature. The work was composed in 1905, and, appropriately given the subject matter, the score is dated 3 December.
