Kammerkoncert No 2 'Kom, lad os gå til Betlehem'

composer
2010; 'Come, let us go to Bethlehem'

 
Kammerkoncert No 2 was commissioned by the Danish Chamber Players. It is inspired by Danish Christmas carols and follows the Italian concerto form in three movements—fast, slow, fast. The initial ‘allegro’ is based on Velkommen igen, Guds engle små (Welcome again, God’s small angels) and is developped in a song form. The middle movement, ‘andante’, is a set of variations on Dejlig er den himmel blå (Lovely is the blue sky). The finale is a bright and joyful paraphrase of Et barn er født i Betlehem (A child is born in Bethlehem) combining the characteristics of variation form and song form.
