Programme Note

MARCHE MACABRE (1983). For mixed choir - and instruments (ad lib.)
The song is my contribution to the Peace movements of the 1980s, and so it has a simple dramatic expression. The song may be performed with a small choreographic design, procession, dance or the like.
The music has an ambiguity and balances between the Frere Jaques-melody, Gustav Mahlers ironic and tragic variation on the same, the clowns march in Nino Rota´s music for Fellini´s film “8 ½” and other marches.
The text is by the Danish poet Jørgen Gustava Brandt, and is sung in Danish.
