Programme Note

Per Nørgård: Cao shu – Letters of grass
The title is a translation of the Chinese Cao Shu, a style of decorative writing, which is used here in a figurative sense to describe the undulating patterns made by the wind blowing over grass-covered hills.
Cao shu, completed in 1993, was written for the clarinettist Jens Schou and the pianist Erik Kaltoft.
