THEATRE OF VOICES – PAUL HILLIER NOMINATED FOR NORDIC COUNCIL MUSIC PRIZE 2013
Nordic Council writes:
“Grammy-winning Theatre of Voices is one of the most prominent vocal ensembles in Europe. TOV presents a daring and original repertoire to an incredibly high artistic and technical standard. The group’s present repertoire spans from early polyphony to contemporary Danish and international composers such as Stockhausen, Berio, Pärt, Reich, Bent Sørensen and Gudmundsen-Holmgreen. In 2010 the ensemble received Grammy Award for David Lang’s Hans Christian Andersen work “The Little Match Girl Passion” commissioned and written for TOV; in 2012 their concert in Carnegie Hall with this work sold out. On Stockhausen’s explicit wish TOV opened the prestigious Berliner Festspiele with his rarely performed “Stimmung”.
TOV collaborates with some of the world’s best instrumentalists such as Kronos Quartet and London Sinfonietta; most recently with concerts and CD-recordings to celebrate Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s 80 years birthday. The ensemble was founded in 1990 by artistic director Paul Hillier and has been based in Denmark since 2004.”
Prize winners are announced begining of June 2013.
Theatre of Voices are very excited to be nominated for the prestigious Nordic Council Music Prize. It is a great honour to be named in this connection.
We hope that the implicit recognition of our work will help consolidate our Nordic collaborations and bring our projects to even more people – in the Nordic region and beyond…

We are shocked and truly sad to hear that our composer friend Steve Martland has died. Our thoughts go to his dear ones. What a loss to us all.
