Programme Note

DE VILDE SVANER (THE WILD SWANS) – for baryton, violin, cello – is dedicated and composed to Kamilla Schatz (violin) og Emil Rovner (cello, basbaryton), to a text fragment of the Danish poet Nis Petersen´s ´Nattevandring´ (“Nightwalk”).

Original text (sung in Danish):
Skrig i de kolde nætter
hvor guldvstøv siler som regn
Fra stjerner der står og smiler.
De vilde skrig
hvor svaner spiler den kække flok ud
i lette kiler.

Translation (by the composer) for the English version:
Cries under frosty nightsky
Where golddust pours down like rain
From stars – perpetual, radiantly, smiling…
The savage call,
Where swans split up the cheerful flight
In vibrant angles.

Per Nørgård (2006)
