This CD is a testimony of the extraordinary meeting between a composer and his foremost vocal interpreter.

Danish mezzo-soprano Helene Gjerris explores six decades of vocal music by Per Nørgård in new instrumentations; music which reaches the darkest corners of the human mind and loaded with intense poetry by Allen Ginsberg, Rainer Maria Rilke, Arthur Rimbaud and Pär Lagerkvist.
