Programme Note

Arne Nordheim TRE VOCI

The work is a setting of poems by three of Italy's great poets: Francesco Petrarcha (1304-74), Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) and Giuseppe Ungaretti (1888-1970).
Spanning several centuries, I feel the poets communicate a common message and meaning, developing from one song to another. In the course of performance, the texts will reveal their roots in a common basis of experience, and asking the same questions. That is why I believe in an underlying continuity of thought across the centuries and beyond the tomb.
