Og for large Ensemble was composed by Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen.
The work was composed for the 200th Birthday of Søren Kierkegaard in 2013.
Kierkegaard’s special interest in the music of Mozart – in particular the opera Don Juan – is reflected in the music of OG. The title refers to S.K’s book entitled Enten Eller (Either Or), a title I initially wanted to comment on by using for my title And Also (or: Both .....And / As Well
As) – but eventually I found that too “corny” - and all that remained was the word OG (“and”). The word “og” is also used in mathemathics, in addition, which is one of the principles used in the composition.
