Program highlights include Stenhammar's "Flickan kom ifrån sin älsklings mote," which is Swedish for "The girl came from meeting her lover." This art song features a girl's vivid encounter with bittersweet love:

The girl came from meeting her lover,
came with her hands all red. Her mother said:
“Why are your hands so red, my girl?”
The girl said: “I was picking roses
and stung my hands on the thorns.
