Per Nørgård: Roads To Ixtlan

Books | Saxophone (Quartet)

Composer: Per Norgard
Format: Sheet Music | Score

All roads lead to Rome, as the saying goes - but do all roads also lead to Ixtlan, perhaps at another time? Ixtlan being the city of the highest aspirations of the Mexican sorcerer, Don Genaro (according to Carlos Casteneda, the anthropologist publishing a series of books on Don Juan, Don Genaro's col-league). There was no final outcome to Genaro's journey, and there will never be one. I will never reach Ixtlan, he said, so Genaro is still on his way there.(Ixtlan may perhaps be interpreted as the inner goal of your heart).In any case: in these three movements the three points of departure are utterly different; still they unanimously move towards just one melodic outcome, a kind of musical centre of gravitation.
