Advent Calendar 2015

December 7th - I Love You

A Christmas Present can also be a leaf of new music!

Sometimes a piece of "classical" music becomes a popular hit. Today for instance, you will listen to one of Grieg's most played works: "I love you" from the Op.5 song, played by the Paul Godwin quartet. There are more than 300 different versions of this song, including one by Frank Sinatra!

Grieg has composed the piece to his fiancé who got it for Christmas in 1864. The lucky lady was the singer Nina Hagerup, who later became Grieg’s wife. Think! How much love in a Christmas present! H. C. Andersen wrote the poem at a time when he was platonic in love with Riborg Voigt.

An interesting curiosity is the fact that this record actually has travelled all the way from Buenos Aires to Norway, it was originally bought in "Casa Romero y Fernandez" in March 12th 1932.
