Notes and Editorial Reviews

This CD is a testimony of the extraordinary meeting between a composer and his foremost vocal interpreter today - and between two strong artistic ersonalities. Danish mezzo-soprano Helene Gjerris explores six decades of vocal music by Per Nørgård (b. 1932) in new instrumentations; music which reaches the dark corners of the human mind, loaded with intense poetry by a.o. Allen Ginsberg, Rainer Maria Rilke, Arthur Rimbaud and Pär Lagerkvist.
