Preface / Programme note:

From the Edda verse 31

Three roots there are that three ways run Neath the ash-tree Yggdrasil; Neath the first lives Hel, neath the second the frost-giants, Neath the last are the lands of men.

The idea behind the Symphony is the story of Yggdrasil, “The Tree of Life”, from the Old Norse mythology. The Ash-tree reaches all the way into the sky and has three roots, each growing into three different places. One root grows into the “Land of Hel” (Hel is the goddess of Hell), called “Helheim”, another into the “Land of Frost-Giants”, called “Jotunheim”, and one root grows into the “Land of men”, called “Asgard”. And the Ash-tree reaches into the sky. In the crown of the tree lives a squirrel, which moves fast around the tree and spreads gossip, both between the three roots and between three roots and the crown of the tree.The Edda is a large collection of Old Norse poems, collected in the 12th Century by the Icelandic poet and historian Snorri Sturluson.
