Programme Note

3 SYSTRAR (1993) for soprano and mixed choir.
“3 Systrar” (“Three Sisters”) dates from 1993, when the Swedish choral conductor Gunnar Eriksson showed me Solveig von Schulz’s entreating poem about the three sisters in one and the same person – another form of the concept of the “simultaneities’” often present in my music. The secretive whispering that complements the unclear insinuations of the sung fragments of the text may express the necessary acceptance that this is a spoken (or rather whispered) concern that I, as a man, can never deeply understand.
“Three Sisters” were composed for Gunnar Eriksson and his chamber choir “Rilke Ensemble”.
Per Nørgård (1993)
