ARS NOVA (DK)
Sunday 08.07.12 - 12:30 - Odeon
Ars Nova gives you a glimpse of another world.
In the middle of Roskilde Festival's many throbbing rhythms and amplified sounds, one of Europe's leading vocal ensembles join in, ready to tickle the senses with an eclectic programme of advanced choral music.
With the acclaimed conductor Paul Hillier at the helm, Ars Nova fills the space with harmony, classical beaut, carousel-rotating loops and hypnotic repetition.
At this Roskilde debut, the honoured ensemble will focus on minimalist works from the 20th century by Terry Riley, David Lang, Steve Reich, Philip Glass and Arvo Pärt.
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
