Alfred Janson - Nasjonalsang
Nasjonalsang / National Anthem
Nasjonalsang (1988) is a tribute to Norges Statsbaner (Norwegian Rail). Janson writes: “I have spent a large part of my life on trains, or at least it feels that way. Even the lady with the refreshment cart and the fellow snoring so trustingly beside me have etched themselves into my subconscious. He describes this piece as a portrait of a train obsessive’s inner life. It is written in a musical style reminiscent of American minimalism
Valse Triste deals with the (then) EEC, and is a sardonic piece in which a jazz quintet accompanies rather absurd cuts from a debate held on Norwegian television about the European Song Contest.
Tarantella (1990) was written for the opening of the Museum for Contemporary Art in Oslo, a building with acoustic similar to that of a church.
