Programme Note
Per Nørgård Sonora (1981)
SONORA for flute and harp is a sister work to Isternia (for cymbalon, or marimba) - inspired by a little town of that name in the Greek island Tinos. During a stay there I was inspired by the timeless peace that emitted from the shimmering white sculptured steps. Both Sonora and Isternia seem to possess a certain timeless or rather 'genreless' character; this is achieved through the use of archetypal melodies and metres and a ´cubistic´ moving to and fro of these well known patterns.
