'One of the very finest selections of Sibelius’s songs … Karnéus’s mellow, heartfelt mezzo is perceptively accompanied by Drake' (BBC Music Magazine)» More
The first of the Dehmel settings, a poet also favoured by Mahler, Aus banger Brust (‘From anxious heart’) is an impassioned one, and Sibelius subsequently scored it.

from notes by Robert Layton © 2002

Le premier des arrangements d’après Dehmel, poète également apprécié de Mahler, Aus banger Brust («D’un cœur anxieux») est passionné et Sibelius l’a par la suite mis en musique.

Aus banger Brust, die erste Vertonung eines Werks von Dehmel, einem auch von Mahler bevorzugten Dichter, ist voller Leidenschaft, und Sibelius schuf später eine Partitur dafür.
