ARS NOVA — a reflection: Liknarbraut

More than 700 years lay between text and music in this version of the Norse epic poem "Liknarbraut". An anonymous skald wrote down his innermost thoughts about the Cross in a strong and sonorous ”dråpa”, entirely in the tradition of the pre-Christian Viking skalds. The poem is full of fascinating and mythical images that speak with an astonishing amount of authority to modern man as well. Wolfgang Plagge’s choral setting bridges the centuries and lends depth to the medieval poetic thoughts. The musical expression ranges from the faintest Pianissimo to cascades of explosive energy, and forms an acoustic impression of Time itself – ARS NOVA part III – a modern reflection.


Mer enn 700 år ligger mellom tekst og musikk i det foreliggende korverket "Liknarbraut" – en ukjent skald skrev ned sine innerste tanker om Korset i et malmfullt og sterkt norrønt språk, fullstendig i de førkristne viking-skaldenes tradisjon. Diktet er fullt av fascinerende og mytiske bilder, og taler med forbløffende autoritet også til dagens menneskesinn. Wolfgang Plagges musikk bygger bro over tidsavstanden og gir dybde til skaldens tankeverden. Uttrykket spenner fra det svakeste pianissimo til eksplosive energiutladninger, og danner et klanglig avtrykk av selve tiden – en refleksjon.
