Sibelius composed this short (only five minutes long) Romance in C Op. 42 in 1903; the work was first performed in Turku in March 1904. The Romance is not a concerto movement in disguise, but features the dark, dense string writing typical of Sibelius. Fast alle Orchesterbearbeitungen sind Jahre nach den Originalkompositionen fur Singstimme und Klavier entstanden.

Trotz der Tatsache dass sie rasch hingeworfen sind zeigt sich in allen Liedern Sibelius' Meisterschaft als Orchesterliederkomponist. Manchmal vermag er eine dustere dramatische Atmosphare (in ,,Pa verandan vid havet) zu erzeugen manchmal gelingen ihm leuchtend farbige Impressionen (in ,,Soluppgang) oder zart transparente Gewebe (in ,,Varen flyktar hastigt) - immer jedoch sind die Lieder ganz aus deren poetischer Idee heraus gestaltet und differenziert nachgezeichnet. In den meisten Fallen beschrankte sich Sibelius auf ein relativ kleines Orchester. In ,,Varen flyktar hastigt sind neben den Streichern nur zwei Floten und vier Horner besetzt. 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.
