'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 last of the set, Rosenlied (‘Rose song’), though not in the same league as some of the others, has great charm and an almost Viennese lilt.

from notes by Robert Layton © 2002

La dernière mélodie de l’ensemble, Rosenlied («Le chant de la rose»), bien qu’elle ne s’inscrive pas dans la même lignée, possède un immense charme et un rythme quasi viennois.

Das letzte Lied dieser Reihe, Rosenlied, besitzt zwar nicht den gleichen hohen Rang, jedoch großen Reiz und einen fast wienerischen, flotten Rhythmus.
