Sibelius made most of the orchestral versions of his songs for the soprano Ida Ekman, the incomparable Sibelius singer the composer called her in a dedication written in a score. Ida Ekman gave the first performance of the orchestral version of Soluppgang on March 30, 1914, in Turku. Ida's husband Karl conducted the orchestra of the Turku Musical Society. Nearly all of the orchestral arrangements were made years after the original compositions for voice and piano.Yet even though the arrangements were made in a very short period of time, Sibelius handled the combination of solo voice and orchestra in all songs with equal mastery, sometimes creating dark and dramatic atmospheres (in Pa verandan vid havet), sometimes radiant, colorful impressions (in Soluppgang), or light-colored, transparent textures (in Varen flyktar hastigt), and always basing his ideas on the poetic idea of the song while discovering refined ways of supporting it.
