Composer: Bent Sørensen
Format: Sheet Music | Score
Programme Note
SIRENENGESANG was composed in the spring 1994 and was commis-sioned by the AVANTI! Chamber Orchestra. The work was written with support from NOMUS.

The music is not a romantic reflection on presumed siren songs. The title expresses an impalpable conception which manifests itself in dense quartertone-distorted melodies and manic, almost frozen tone-repetitions. Sometimes the music becomes static screams, sometimes there is room for small naive fragments of melody.

By the end of the piece a fragment from the 'Angel-Duet' of my THE ECHOING GARDEN emerges.

SIRENENGESANG is dedicated to Per Nørgård.
