The anniversary kicks off!

JubilæumsforsidebilledeWe in CAMERATA have long had our sights set on 2015, our 50th anniversary year. We’re pulling out all the stops with a year-long series of classic, contemporary, and newly-commissioned choir music. Check out our “Concerts” link for a summary of the year’s plethora of amazing concerts, featuring music by Bach, Bruun, Nielsen, Sandström, Schultz, and many more.

The first concert in the series is entitled Nordic Stabat Mater, to be presented on February 22 at 4pm in Esajas Church (entrance is free). The concert will feature two Nordic interpretations of the latin text Stabat Mater: Stabat Mater Nordica, written for CAMERATA in 2000 by five of the most acclaimed Swedish and Danish composers, and Stabat Mater by Knut Nystedt, one of the greatest Norwegian composers, who passed away in December, 2014 at the age of 99. Both works are written for choir and cello, a poignant combination of the cello’s warm timbre naturally blending with the singers’ voices. Cello: Niels Ullner.

After Stabat Mater, CAMERATA turns immediately to J.S. Bach’s awesome St. Matthew Passion, the epic oratorio for double choir and double orchestra, plus soloists and children’s choir, to be performed on March 29 at 7:30pm in Holmens Church. Read more about the concert here.

Tickets are available for purchase here on Billetnet.
