In Vedel's choir concertos, melodies grow from folk-song roots and find deep expression in broadness of singing. Dramatic pages of the concertos are imbued with the spirit of many genres.
The biography of A. Vedel is surrounded by mysterious events. It is unclear what caused his resignation and the imperial edict, which banned the performance of Vedel's works. The reason for his arrest and confinement to a lunatic asylum, where he died, is also unknown. Perhaps there were political reasons; but enough documentation does not exist on the matter for final judgment.
hear in the sorrowful concentration and deep mediation of the concertos an
autobiographical tone, interrupted by pathos and angry accusations, an echo of
the tragic fate of the composer.
