A tuneful farewell to the summer that never was…

21330686_10156629680419778_703663986_oCopenhagen Chamber Choir CAMERATA are preparing for a series of ambient autumn concerts celebrating the blooming and decay of life, and the promise of a return to light after darkness!

In the three concerts titled Life, Death, and Resurrection, we explore the interweaving of the natural, the human, and the divine. We have put together a programme embodying large contrasts in theme – day and night, life and death, winter and spring – as well as in music, as old lyrics and tunes are reinterpreted by modern Nordic composers.

The repertoire ranges from dramatic compositions by Max Reger and Sven David Sandström to Danish late summer gems by Sven S. Schultz, Peter Bruun, and others. Bruun’s newly composed version of the cherished classic autumn hymn Nu falmer skoven will have its first performance at these concerts. We are very grateful to Bistrup Church for having commissioned this arrangement as part of the festival “Music of the seasons in Rudersdal”, which has given us the opportunity to perform this work for the first time.

You will also get to hear some of the most beautiful works from our winning programme at the choir competition in London earlier this year, such as Norwegian Ola Gjeilo’s Unicornis Captivatur, a veritable tour-de-force featuring a phoenix, a unicorn, and other mysterious animals.

Concert dates:

19 September, 7:30 pm, Taarbæk Church

21 September, 7:00 pm, Husum Church

1 October, 3:00 pm, Bistrup Church
