Rued Langgaard composed 143 songs, most of them in his younger years, of which 18 have been lost. 27 of the songs were, as the only ones in his life time, published by Wilhelm Hansen between 1906 and 1919. Only 65 songs were given in concert before his death in 1952. The songs on this CD falls into three groups; 8 songs based on texts written by Emil Rittershaus and two song cycles: Fünf Lieder (Five Songs) on poems by Jospeh von Eichendorff and Heinrich Heine, and 5 erotiske Digte (5 Erotic Poems) based on poems by Norwegian poet Vilhelm Krag.
