From the CD folder:

SINFONIA PER DUE VIOLINI

The piece »Sinfonia per due violini« is based upon a film script by Johannes Nyholm. It is our hope that this film will soon be realised, and that parts of Sinfonia will be used as the score. The film deals with grandiose visions and unattainable dreams. Where desire itself is depicted as a thing of magnificent beauty, and at the same time absurd and crazy. Like life itself. Sinfonia portrays all of this in four parts.


the vision is immediately expressed
then everything is a struggle
to maintain ruminate cramped variation
stubborn uncertain vanity

the beauty, the contrast, along the road
is it just a charming poison?
the decadence, the oblivion
the desire to make real
cramped, lockjawed
without enough oxygen
but so beautiful

so magnificent
and if vanity can be banished
utopia ignored
come surprising openings
how positive

through the transformation
the music passes
through you
and comes to existence
develops

music is caught through
new listeners
who create
however much the violins screech

without the listening
without the music
without the vessel
without anything

the music transforms
