Programme Note
Per Nørgård Playground (2007)
The title is meant to suggest something playfull, even childlike, but also
something challenging and competitive. All these elements are part of
sports, games and playing – and playing music.
Even if the mostly straightforward melodic patterns resemble the melos’
of children’s jingles and chants, substantial technical and musical demands
will be made on the violin player during the six to seven minutes of musical
PLAYGROUND was commissioned by The 8th Carl Nielsen International
Violin Competition, taking place in Odense, May/June 2008.
