Cover picture - Brusferden i Hardanger (Bridal Journey in Hardanger) painted by Adolph Tidemand and Hans Gude (1848). The original is owned by Nasjonalgalleriet, Oslo. Brude-Slaatten (The Bridal March) was written in Christiania in 1872. It was written as the text accompianment to the cover picture and was dedicated to Hans Christian Anderson. Opening: There lived last century, in one of the high-lying inland valleys of Norway, a fiddler, who has become in some degree a legendary personage. Of the tunes and marches scribed to him, some are said to have been inspired by Trolls, one he heard from the Devil himself, another he made to save his life etc etc. But the most famous of all is a Bridal March; and its story does not end with the story of his life. Footnote #1 - The old superstition that every man is followed by a Vardoeger (an invisible animal, resembling him in character) is still common among the peasants. Yay - have a looksee at this The Bridal Voyage in Hardanger: A part of the Norwegian silent movie by Rasmus Breistein, 1926, based on Norwegian Film Institute's reconstruction from 2007. from wiki . A Hardanger fiddle (or in Norwegian: hardingfele) is a traditional stringed instrument used originally to play the music of Norway. In modern designs, the instruments are very similar to the violin, though with eight or nine strings (rather than four as on a standard violin) and thinner wood. Four of the strings are strung and played like a violin, while the rest, aptly named understrings or sympathetic strings, resonate under the influence of the other four, providing a pleasant haunting, echo-like sound. You can listen here: to the fiddle and see what a beautiful instrument it is ------------------------------------------- Song of Norway featured Harry Secombe as Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson : http://youtu.be/uaIefrWUXV0 Toralv Maurstad ... Edvard Grieg Florence Henderson ... Nina Grieg Christina Schollin ... Therese Berg Frank Porretta ... Richard Nordraak Harry Secombe ... Bioernstjerne Bjoernson Robert Morley ... Berg Edward G. Robinson ... Krogstad Elizabeth Larner ... Mrs. Bjoernson Oskar Homolka ... Engstrand Frederick Jaeger ... Henrik Ibsen Henry Gilbert ... Franz Liszt Richard Wordsworth ... Hans Christian Andersen Bernard Archard ... George Nordraak John Barrie ... Mr. Hagerup Wenche Foss ... Mrs. Hagerup ------------------------------------------- En Dag (One Day) was originally issued in the Norwegian magazind 'Nyt Tidsscrift' late in 1893. Opening : Ella was generally known as the girl with the plait. But thick as the plait was, if it had belonged to any one less shapely, less blonde, less sprightly, hardly anyone would have noticed it; the merry life which it led behind her would have passed unobserved, and that, although it was the thickest plait which anyone in the little town had ever boasted. I sing to one, to only one Of the listening throng; To one alone is fully known The meaning of my song. Lend powers, ye listeners, to each word. But for that only one Who in me woke sweet music's chord My song had ne'er been sung. Though deviously the path may run, Passing through all hearts here, Yet still is it the only one Which to one heart is near. Strengthen, oh loving hearts, my song, So that it still may swell Through all love's choir; the only one That in her heart may dwell. ------------------------------------------ The translator(s) remain unnamed, which is pretty ugly of the publisher's dontcha fink. 4* - Captain Mansana & Mothers Hands 2.5* - The Bridal March & One Day

    Había leído que los primeros premios Nobel eran "particulares", porque su literatura era más una muestra de arte nórdico que de algo universal y eso fue precisamente lo que descubrí en La marcha nupcial. Se trata de una novela costumbrista que sucede en las montañas de Noruega y gira en torno a una familia marcada por la marcha nupcial compuesta por Ole Hangen, uno de sus primeros miembros. La marcha nupcial es el presagio de felicidad de las parejas que se casan y, por eso, el día que no suena e Había leído que los primeros premios Nobel eran "particulares", porque su literatura era más una muestra de arte nórdico que de algo universal y eso fue precisamente lo que descubrí en La marcha nupcial. Se trata de una novela costumbrista que sucede en las montañas de Noruega y gira en torno a una familia marcada por la marcha nupcial compuesta por Ole Hangen, uno de sus primeros miembros. La marcha nupcial es el presagio de felicidad de las parejas que se casan y, por eso, el día que no suena en una de las bodas de otra generación de la familia, se rompe el buen augurio que no volverá hasta la siguiente generación. La verdad es un libro aburrido que no recomiendo. Tal vez en otra época fuera útil para entender la cultura noruega, pero creo que ha perdido vigencia y que al lado de la literatura de hoy, es demasiado ingenuo. Más en: https://vistoleidohecho.com/
