Event details

A choir with many facets

The Danish National Vocal Ensemble is an elite choir with a pure, transparent Nordic sound – and at the same time each of the 18 singers is a professional soloist with a strong personal mode of expression.

In the company of the Danish National Vocal Ensemble you can experience the whole spectrum of choral music – from 500-year-old Renaissance music through Romantic classics to brand new works by young composing talents. Several Danish and Euro­pean composers have written works specifically for the Danish National Vocal Ensemble, which is today internationally acclaimed.

Each season the Danish National Vocal Ensemble appears in a number of a cappella concerts as well as with the Danish National Symphony Orchestra . The choir also appears with ensembles like Concerto Copenhagen or orchestras from Nordic or other European countries.

The Danish National Vocal Ensemble has recorded a long succession of CDs. In 2012, they won the prestigious German Echo Music Prize for the CD The Nightingale, recor­ded with recorder virtuoso Michala Petri. Other new CDs include Per Nørgård’s large choral work Libra and a recording of Francis Poulenc’s choral music.
