"Nordic Broken is a three-movement work from 2020, that focuses on the broken, like nature can break ground, mountains, and wood. Broken as the unavoidable decay, a prerequisite for new life. Broken as the mind can be burdened with grief. To be broken, that is, to be humble, for example, towards the beauty of nature," Ejnar Kanding explains.
The work is commissioned by and dedicated to Messiaen Quartet Copenhagen. With support from the Danish Arts Foundation. The Nordic Series (2020-21) are three compositions combined in a work cycle, composed for piano, strings, and live electronics; and which is inspired by life in Scandinavia.
