Carl Nielsen s Voice is the first study to present an in-depth analysis of the work of the Danish composer and conductor Carl Nielsen (1865 1931), which comprises nearly 300 songs.The volume offers a comprehensive account of Carl Nielsen as a composer viewed from the point of view of a musicologist with an international background and with considerable insight into Danish language and culture. This is the first time in the reception history of Carl Nielsen that a large portion of his songs is examined in relation to both his own production and in a broader cultural historical context.In addition to this analysis, Anne-Marie Reynolds provides a stylistic comparative opera Masquerade. This is done with a view to demonstrating that the opposition between Carl Nielsen as a composer of songs and Carl Nielsen as the composer of great works is only a seeming opposition.With this book it is now possible for Nielsen enthusiasts living beyond the Danish borders to familiarise themselves with the genre that until now for linguistic reasons by and large has been reserved for Danes, and which is rightly considered to be one of the composer s most important contributions to the Danish musical heritage."
