  1. Hi. I hope you do an interview with August Fenger Janson. His main title theme for Borgen- Power & Glory, is fantastic! His use of at least three voice elements to start- including one very unique one which is like a whisper used in a percussive way- is so fresh and then the cello and the violin elements give it soaring beauty and tension. I got the same amazing feeling that I do from the House of Cards and Game of Thrones themes. They all powerfully convey the themes of power and hubris which these three film/tv works explore. Forgive any unartful terms I use as I am not musically trained. I am just the lucky listener of works like this by brilliant composers. Thank you for this chance to comment.

      Susan, I believe the vocal elements you refer to are aspects of Inuit throat-singing, to reflect the Greenlandic characters and storyline around which this new series of Borgen centres itself.
