We are happy to welcome Mats Lillhannus as a member of Ars Nova Copenhagen in the new year. We had an extremely strong international field of applicants at our audition and the choice hasn't been easy. And then again. Mats showed all the qualities that we seek in a singer: soloistic power, flexible ensemble singing, musical surpluss and an extremely nice personality.
Our newest album "Carl Nielsen - Songs for Choir" have received excellent reviews.
Thomas Michelsen in Politiken gives the album five out of six hearts and writes, "ARS NOVAS SINGERS under the leadership of one of the books (Folkehøjskolens melodibog where many of the songs from the album are published, ed.) present day editors, conductor Michael Bojesen, sings with beautiful balance and a perfect sonority composure."
On Satruday the 22nd of November the Danish composer Axel Borup-Jørgensen would have been 90 years old. In connection with that CARAMBOLAGE was published. It has participation of Århus Sinfonietta, Ars Nova og Søren Kinch Hansen. The CD is published on the Danish record label DaCapo Record. Ars Nova sings Borup-Jørgensens' Pocket Oratorio.
