Programme Note

The work was composed for the 200th birthday of Søren Kierkegaard in 2013.
Kierkegaard’s special interest in the music of Mozart – in particular the opera Don
Juan – is reflected in the music of OG.

The title refers to S.K’s book entitled Enten Eller (Either Or), a title I initially
wanted to comment on by using for my title And Also (or: Both .....And / As Well
As) – but eventually I found that too “corny” - and all that remainded was the
word OG (“and”).

The word “og” is also used in mathemathics, in addition, which is one of the
principles used in the composition.
