Nicolai Gedda

Nicolai Gedda, accompanied by Erik Werba, achieved a similar feat in the realm of the lied – and did it in four languages and with songs from the most varied epochs. The Swede Gedda found an enthusiastic audience in his song recital of 1959, offering lucidity in the manner in which he combined different registers and in the mellifluousness of his vocal line. His programme brought together compositions from Falconieri to Respighi and from Glinka to Shostakovich.
