Morten S. Danielsen: Donalds09

Album Summary

Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Morten Skovgaard Danielsen (1967-2009) died during the completion of his opera 'Donalds09'. The story, for which the author Morten E Norskov has written texts, is just as hard to pin down as most other things in the composer's constantly boundary-challenging art. Three people, all called Donald, each with an individual personality - or one person with three split personalities - live unresolved lives. They meet the waitress Dolly in a universe of soft porn, cocaine and the dead Kurt Cobain, with frequent visits from the world of literature in the figures of Hamlet, Ulysses and James Joyce.
