On January 30, 1970 Henning Christiansen and Bjørn Nørgaard - a figure nearly as radical as Christiansen himself - hit the Danish national consciousness when a large portion of the Danish population watched a TV broadcast performance piece in protest of the Vietnam War. Hesteofringen ("The Horse Sacrifice", 1970) features the work "Min Døde Hest Opus 55" ("My Dead Horse", 1970) for piano, voice, and violin (green), a beautiful haunting fragile song featuring a poem written by Bjørn Nørgaard; performed by Lene Adler Pedersen, accompanied by Nørgaard and Christiansen on piano and (green) violin. Laden with metaphor, this beautiful, sad lullaby is as simple and unusual as anything in Christiansen's output. Previously unreleased. Embossed lettering; Edition of 350.
