Programme Note
Bent Sørensen Cavatina fra "Under Himlen" (2001)
Cavatina is a small aria from my and the dramatist Peter Asmussen’s opera Under the Sky. One of the main characters from the opera, Ida, a beautiful young woman who is unhappily married to a rather repellent husband, stands looking out of the window and dreams of happiness:

"... I want to be happy ...
I want to see the golden light in the forests.
I want to have my heart torn out and carried through the world
by the hands of my beloved"

- Bent Sørensen
