Michael Nyvangs ”Movements for a monument to the loneliness of the world” (1986-93) is amongst the most ambitious and brave works written by a young Danish composer. Its opulent title is to some degree countered by the music’s abstract purity – as Bo Gunge writes ”It is apparently the ambition of the piece to create a personal, emotionally charged work that in a tightly controlled atmosphere gives the listener the possibility of many different kinds of experience; from classic to modernist/sculptural to the meditative.” (Autograf3/X)
