Nordics

Ensemble 96
For its next concert, the ever enterprising New London Chamber Choir, conductor Matthew Hamilton is joining forces with the Oslo-based chamber choir Ensemble 96, conductor Nina Therese Karlsen, for a concert of Nordic music on Saturday 10 October 2015 at St James's Church, Sussex Gardens, London W2 3UD.

The concert is mixing contemporary Nordic composers with those of a previous generation with Torbjørn Dyrud's Lovesongs, Knut Nystedt's Prayers of Kierkegaard, Anders Hillborg's Mouyayoum, Kaija Saariaho's Nuits, adieux, Per ​​Nørgård's Wie ein Kind and finishing with Knut Nystedt's Immortal Bach which has become something of a modern classic, with three composers from Norway, and one each from Finland, Denmark and Sweden.

Ensemble 96 was Grammy nominated for its recording of Per ​​Nørgård's Wie ein Kind and you can hear it on SoundCloud, you can also hear the New London Chamber Choir performing Kaija Saariaho's Nuits, adieux on SoundCloud to whet your appetite.
