READ

The inspiration for this work is taken from a poem written in 1990 by the East German poet Reiner Kunze. The poem deals with the fall of the wall and reunification of East and West Germany. In the poem a particular mood is captured: instead of a celebratory poem he describes the fall of the wall as an opening for all that which has been hidden. The shame from after the war which suddenly has been laid bare. As a composer Worsaae attempts to capture this experience, which is difficult to express since it contains so much tension and a complex range of feelings which appear alongside one another.
