Day And Night (1982) by Per Nørgård.

Programme Note

DAY AND NIGHT (1982) – 2 short songs for alto, piano (and cello ad lib.). 
The contrasting constellation of these two poems (Ted Hughes´ ”A Kill” and William Shakespeare´s ”How Silver sweet sound”, from Romeo and Juliet, act 2, III) do not call for much explanation by the composer: the world´s woes in Hughes´ poem (in the form of delivery problems during a child’s birth) is follow by the balsamic words of love – to the night – by Shakespeare. Another ode to the night might have been chosen, I do not know any other that, in so few words, creates such an atmosphere of love and enchanted night as this poem by Shakespeare.
