Alvissmál

For  Renske de Leuw en Thorwald Jorgensen (harp and theremin)

The theme of the composition is from the  poëtic Edda and is about a conversation between Thor and  Alvíss the dwarf who wants to marry the daughter of Thor.

It is question and answer,  in the form of poems, with a improvisation played under it and alternated by dances.

Thorwald plays Thor and Renske plays Alvìss.

The whole composition is in a norwegian style, a kind of ballad and I have edited middle aged folksongs. It is like a painting exhibition you walk from one to the other.

Renske en Thorwald are going to use the composition for children's performances
