Theater of Voices by Lars Bjarnoe
When Theatre of Voices performed Stockhausen’s epic Stimmung at Carnegie Hall, The New York Times praised the ensemble's performance as “confident and luminous, controlled yet free …” Theatre of Voices returns to give the New York premiere of an Arvo Pärt work accompanied with a film by award-winning Danish director Phie Ambo. Paul Hillier, Theatre of Voices' artistic director, conducted the world premiere of David Lang’s the little match girl passion and the ensemble recorded it to tremendous acclaim. Both reacquaint themselves with Lang’s music in the writings—the world premiere of the complete cycle.
