Nine Waves featuring Nordic String Quartet.
The title Nine Waves refers to the nine types of waves, who are the maidens of Ægir and Rán. In Norse mythology, Ægir is a sea giant, the god of the ocean and king of the sea. Ægir's wife is Rán the sea goddess. She is by Ægir mother of nine billow maidens. Through the nine movements, the music evolves from the quiet waves to the frothing, into the deep, further to the pitching waves, and finally the dark. In this way, the music changes from the whispering to the flowing, through the deep meditation to the feeling of some ancient origin, and in the end the lonely fighter on the dark and giant ocean.
Nine Waves is supported by the Danish Arts Foundation.
