Programme Note
Hans Abrahamsen Lied in Fall (1987)
I et efterårsagtigt landskab af stadigt faldende linjer bevæger celloen sig syngende i sin lied, omgivet af skygger af hvad der har været og vil være, sammen med andre melodier, som i øjeblikket er mellem disse linjer…
”Lied in Fall” er skrevet i 1987 på bestilling af the london Sinfonietta, der uropførte værket 28. januar 1988 (i deres 20 års jubilæumssæson) med Christopher van Kampen som solist.
Lied in Fall er tilegnet Per Nørgård.
-Hans Abrahamsen

In an autumnal landscape of falling lines, the cello moves about with delicate lyricism, almost singing its lied. It is surrounded by shadows of what has been and what has yet to come, coexisting with melodies between these lines…
”Lied in Fall” was commissioned by London Sinfonietta, who also premiered the piece on 28th of January 1988 (the 20th anniversary season of the ensemble) with Christopher van Kampen as soloist.
”Lied in Fall” is dedicated to Per Nørgård
-Hans Abrahamsen

Reviews
Musikhøst 2008. Athelas afsluttende værk var "lied in fall". "En hel lise, at koncerten med sin gennemgående alvor afsluttedes med Hans Abrahamsens "Lied in Fall" fra 1987, indtrængende spillet af cellisten Tobias van der Pals, som trods de faldende og triste melodilinjer i hele akkompagnementet bare sidder der og insisterer på at spille sin egen melodi, midt i efterårets gulnede blade."
