Vivian Dahl

(born in 1938 in Denmark) is self-taught as a composer. She writes primarily vocal music and perceives music more as a language than as a form or structure. Among her early works from the 1970s are songs with political messages. For example, the revolutionary struggle poems as lyric or Collection Tracks are weapons 1978-84. Her later songs have more lyrical texts of such Nils Ferlin, Harald Herdal or Pablo Neruda. Among her few instrumental works is a piano trio from 2000.
