Peter Heise - Trio in E flat major

Violin: Julie Eskær.
Cello: Emilie Eskær.
Piano, Charlotte Thanning.

Heise was one of the contestants in the 1800-century Danish music. His efforts were significant in 2 areas: the romance and the great opera. Although his opera production was limited, his magnum opus Drott and Marsh predicate "The best Danish opera in the 1800s." It was tepid received from the beginning, but subsequently became more popular and is still played.

His songs and romances, however, was numerous. The development of the Danish song started in 1790s with Schultz and continued by Weyse and Street. Many others helped, but Heisenberg rarefied genre, romance and tradition culminated in the 20 years younger PE Lange-Müller in the late 1800's.

Then occurred a reaction in early 1900-century, led by Thomas Laub and Carl Nielsen. They wanted the Danish song would be simpler and easier to sing. Their ideas were continued by including Poul Schierbeck and Thorvald Aagaard, only to ebb around 1950 with among others Otto Mortensen. Heise's championship based on his ability, with respect to the strophic form, building his songs into clear manageable process with a finely shaped melodic without equal in Danish romance art.

He shows early on a sure sense of capturing a natural or love poem mood and add a piano accompaniment, which carries a timbral refinement and musical interpreter function. Heise made his debut as a composer in 1848 with a student association cantata and then wrote a long series of romances. He also wrote piano music, chamber music and symphony and stage music and more.

Piano Quintet from 1869 mentioned as the best Danish example of the genre. In addition, a piano trio in Eb Major, 6 string quartets, some pieces for cello and piano and a violin sonata. His largest single holding is opera Drott and marsh with libretto by Christian Richardt, which was premiered at the Royal Theatre 25th september 1878th After Heise's death was published 3 volumes of Romances and Songs collected previously printed songs and previously unreleased.

The books contain a total of 187 songs and romances, but if you count them, coming from various plays, you come to a total of approx. 300th Some music scholars have believed that if Heise had written to German lyrics, his romances today be known worldwide. The musical inspiration came from countries including Ludwig van Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn and Robert Schumann. Stylistically, he started in classicism, but ended in a more expressive and dramatic romance.
