Leaving (sheet music)


I received this email from Canadian author, Margaret Blair, and it inspired me to my composition “Leaving”.
“Dear Per-Olov,
I was doing my usual hour or so wandering through your music and I noticed that you explain the silences in your playing to your musically well-educated audience. I use this all the time when giving talks on my books e.g. for the end of my childhood memoir, as we are leaving, I describe the quick post-war return of Shanghai to its commercial roots and say:
“And engrossed in its own affairs, Shanghai, the love of my life, the place of my birth
turned its back.
(longer pause)
On the wharf, a dead seagull, its wing lifted by fitful gusts of wind, waved goodbye.”
(silence, end of talk).
I look forward to more of your sublime music – and stay well.

Especially the last sentence, about the Seagull waving goodbye, caught my attention.
