Bent Sørensen SIRENENGESANG
SIRENENGESANG was composed in the spring 1994 and was commis-sioned by the AVANTI! Chamber Orchestra. The work was written with support from NOMUS.
The music is not a romantic reflection on presumed siren songs. The title expresses an impalpable conception which manifests itself in dense quartertone-distorted melodies and manic, almost frozen tone-repetitions. Sometimes the music becomes static screams, sometimes there is room for small naive fragments of melody.
By the end of the piece a fragment from the 'Angel-Duet' of my THE ECHOING GARDEN emerges.
SIRENENGESANG is dedicated to Per Nørgård.
