Notes & Reviews:

In his most important work to date, the song cycle 'Moon-pain' (2003-8) for mezzo-soprano and chamber ensemble, Klaus Ib Jorgensen (b. 1967) has set the moonlit, dreaming poems of the Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935) to music that is both beautiful and disturbing. The six movements of the work are interwoven here with two other, related compositions: 'Goblin Dance' (2005) for clarinet and piano, and 'Lisbon Revisited' (2008) – a soundscape from the streets of Lisbon, a poem by Pessoa in a variety of languages, and fragments of the Moon-pain music.
