Songs beloved even in their own time, Peter Heise's romanticism spans dreams, the middle ages, and folk-tales, with inspiration drawn from his own work collecting hundreds of folk songs from country folk during his youth. Well-established duo mezzo-soprano Jessie Wright Martin and pianist John O'Brien will share some of Heise's most dreamy and romantic songs from his extensive body of work. They will explore musical representations of the erotic, romantic trembling, and Europe in the middle-ages in a dreamy Danish affair.
