Tjampuan (1992) - ´Where the Rivers meet´ - 6 Movements for Violin and Cello by Per Nørgård.

Programme Note:

Any nature phenomenon with a character of its own - a bat cave, a very old banja tree etc, is by the balinese regarded as holy (for which reason very often a temple is placed close to it !) Thus also the place where two rivers meet (called ´tjampuan´in Indonesian, this also the name of a valley ´where the rivers meet´near Ubud, Bali). The connection to a duo for violin and cello is hardly difficult to understand: Two individualities integrate their soloistic expressions to one, the rivers meet. The 5th movement, however, is a thorough contrast movement (more ´brook like´!), as is also the 6th movement which, with its whirling figurations, rather associate to kataracts or fountains.
