Ars Nova Copenhagen
Ars Nova Copenhagen have made many recordings arousing great international interest and since their establishment have given more than a thousand concerts in Europe, Israel, Japan, South America and the United States. Choirmasters have included Bo Holten and Hungarian‐born Tamás Vető. Peter Philips (The Tallis Scholars), Bruno Turner (Pro Cantione Antiqua) and of course Paul Hillier (The Hilliard Ensemble, Theatre of Voices) have worked with the chorus. Among the great masters of earlier ages mainly the works of Josquin, Tallis, Lasso, Palestrina and Taverner form the core of their repertoire, but they have also helped audiences to discover the art of Pierre de la Rue, Nicolas Gombert, Philipe de Magalhaes, Giaches de Wert and Jacob Obrecht. The contemporary composers include both Scandinavians (Per Nørgård, Ib Nørholm, Pelle Gudmundsen‐Holmgreen, Sven‐David Sandstrøm, Poul Ruders, Hans Abrahamsen) and world famous composers (Takemitsu, Gorecki, Pärt, Terry Riley, John Cage) and Ars Nova Copenhagen have given the first performance of many new works. The chorus is not averse to crossover experiments either and has already worked with renowned jazz musicians (including Jan Gabarek, Palle Mikkelborg, Pierre Dørge, Marilyn Mazur and Egberto Gismonti).
