VÆRKNOTE: ET ROSENBLAD – TIL HANS (2002). For klaver.

Der tilbagekommer ofte i min produktion et lille antal melodier, hvis forbindelse til min c. 1960 fundne “uendelighedsrække” gør melodierne både “prismatisk” forvandlede og identiske (ligesom fraktaler). Dette gælder ikke mindst melodien “Flos ut rosa” (En blomst som rosen), der første gang anvendtes i værket “Nova Genitura” (1975), og senest er den genkommet i det 12stemmige korværk ”Ut Rosa” (2001)

”Et Rosenblad – til Hans” er tilegnet den svenske komponist Hans Gefors i anledning af hans 50-års dag.

PROGRAMME NOTE: ET ROSENBLAD – TIL HANS (A Rose Leaf – for Hans) – (2002). For piano solo. The concept of Mary has a depth that transcends all religious persuasions. All over the earth symbols of the gentle and maternal are known. But the word ´Maria´ is also associated – in sound – with the Latin word for the sea, mare, and she thus becomes the Star of the Sea, Maris Stella.In my “Third Symphony” the Maria motif is used in a hymn section in the second, and last, part of the work. The choral song “Flos ut rosa floruit” was composed directly in the context of the symphony, and the melody had a ´stamina´ that carried it over into many later vocal and choral compositions, for instance “Fons laetitiae”, “Nova genitura”, “Ut rosa”, “Harp Concerto no. 2 – Through Thorns” (2003), “Consolazione” for harp solo, and this piano piece, dedicated to the Swedish composer Hans Gefors, for his 50th birthday.Per Nørgård
