Nielsen’s op. 4 and op. 6 songs, settings of the poet Jens Peter Jacobsen, were written in 1891. They are among the few of his songs written as ‘artsongs’ rather than being in folk-song style. Jacobsen’s texts display a bitter-sweet romanticism.
The Op. 6 songs are: "Genrebillede" - A young squire tries to write a love poem - in the end he gives up in frustration and blows his love out with his trumpet; "Seraferne" - It is dawn, and the Seraphs are preparing the earth for the sign from God, to let day break forth; "Silkesko over gylden læst" - I have married the most wonderful young woman. She is pure as snow, but in my heart I feel also the more earthly desires; "Det bødes der For" - A beautiful song about the vanity of happiness and joy- “There will be sorrow, there will be anguish from red roses”; "Vise af ”Mogens” "- The farmer Mogens fantasizes about how wonderful life could have been if only he had had a daughter… grandchildren… wife… money…
