22. Bier dør sovende

 

Title: Bier dør sovende
Instrument/genre: chamber, song
Komponeret: 17.05.1999
Score: Bier dør sovende

Bier dør sovende was commisoned by the chamber ensemble “Ensemble Fyn” to their concert serie “new music”.
The ensemble has their base at the island Funen, the middle island in Denmark.
The Ensemble has specialized itself in performing contemporary composers and late romantic pieces fitting for the instrumentation of Ensemble Fyn.
They are performing under conductor Mogens Dahl.

“Bier dør sovende” was performed under the festival “NUMUS” in 1999.
I’ve written part 1 of the idea, part 2 is sketched and will hopefully be written someday.

The text is from a poetry collection by Morten Søndergaard “Bier dør sovende”.

 

Bier Dør sovende

Du siger
at bier dør sovende

men de styrter til jorden ramt af en

hjerneblødning, der er

formodentlig honning inde i væggen

og de kommer tilbage år efter år
