Programme Note

4 Songs for mezzo soprano and piano

The texts are about “the near things”, everyday things and ordinary things, but with the aid of the poet Knud Sørensen’s delicate wizardry with the words, it is lifted to a different, timeless level. Knud Sørensen is (like the composer) from Mors, and he often uses the farmlands and the little society of the island as a theme in his prose and his poems.
