Composer’s notes

The composition Polymnia was inspired by one of the nine Greek muses. She was the Goddess of music, the song and the dance. The five songs are moments of retrospection, miniatures, which briefly describe five different atmospheres. It was important to give an emotional impulse for these atmospheres. It would be possible to sing or dance the melodic or atmospheric elements of these five songs.
