Cecilie Ore (*1954)

SCHWIRREN for vocal ensemble
Text: "Das Fliegenpapier" by Robert Musil

"The Flypaper is a deeply pessimistic text. It is a requiem, a slow, drawn out moment of death. At the same time it is pervaded by burlesque humour. Tragedy and comedy go hand in hand... It is set at an individual, human level (the flies assume human dimensions in the course of the text). It says something about being wary of dying while you are living." Cecilie Ore,, october 2004
