Evert Jan Nagtegaal and the Art of Song

Ballads – Part 2

This is the second part on Ballads (part 1 aired on 10 October) . In the first part, we featured Carl Loewe’s ballads; in this episode, you will hear a variety of composers and ballads that are just as diverse. The poets include François Villon, P.C. Hooft, Goethe, Heine, Bertold Brecht and Paul Fort.

According to van Dale, a ballad is “an epic lyric ( sorrowful) poem in stanzas”.
