This evening I met with Det Ny Kammerkor and their conductor Anders Højgård Gaden. During the rehearsal, the choir tried out my very first sketches for my new work for choir, Abendlied, which the choir commissioned with support from the Danish Arts Foundation and the Danish Composers Association / Koda Kultur on the occasion of the choir’s 20th anniversary.
Thank you to the member of the choir to make themselves available for these try-outs during my composition process. When you think about it, voices that blend together are one of the wildest things, that you can hear.
Abendlied will be premiered in November 2020!
