Der Flug der Liebe. Ein Volksliedprojekt

Der Flug der Liebe. Ein Volksliedprojekt "Der Flug der Liebe", the Flight of Love, was one of the songs collected by German scholar Johann Gottfried Herder in the late 18th century. In the early 1770s he coined the new word ‘Volkslied’ (‘folksong’), a concept so seductive it soon migrated in translation into other languages. Directed by renowned Danish fiddle maestro Harald Haugaard, this programme is a celebration of this repertoire, complemented by tunes from other collections and performed by a fine team from today’s folksong revival.
