Classical Sunday: Lassen sings Nielsen and Loewe

Morten Ernst Lassen is best known to us from singing Aragorn’s parts on The Tolkien Ensemble’s CDs An Evening/ A Night/ At Dawn in Rivendell.

Today’s offering is a playlist of songs by Carl Nielsen and Carl Loewe, all sung by Morten Ernst Lassen, a Danish baritone who, regrettably, retired over 15 years ago from singing.

Carl August Nielsen (9 June 1865 – 3 October 1931) was a Danish composer, conductor and violinist, and is widely recognized as his country’s most prominent composer.

Johann Carl Gottfried (Karl) Loewe (30 November 1796 – 20 April 1869), was a German composer, tenor singer and conductor.
