Programme Note ABENDLIED & MÄRCHENFARBEN for accordion ensemble – incl. choir and percussion ad lib. (1980).MÄRCHENFARBEN is a virtuoso piece for accordion ensemble, based on Nørgård´s “infinity series”, and a special multi-layered rhythm also heard in the composers well known choral work “Wie ein Kind” (second movement) from the same year, 1980.This rhythm, with the onomatopoeic nickname ´pischop´, has a swaying and breathing quality, which seems well suited for an ensemble of accordions. Two percussion parts – to be added ad lib. - are composed into the tone music of the accordions in “Märchenfarben”.The piece was composed in 1980 for the very talented Det Danske Harmonika Ensemble and its leader Jeanette Dyremose – an ensemble that enlarged the instrumental piece with an introduction (as suggested by the composer), singing and playing Nørgård´s choral song “Abendlied” (1980) to a sunset idyllic poem by Adolf Wölfli (1864-1930), including here the word ´märchenfarben´, the title of the shimmering and colorful instrumental music to follow with Märchenfarben. The duration of Abendlied & Märchenfarben is around 15-17 minutes (5-6´ + 10-11´).Per Nørgård
