A sold-out Elbphilharmonie concert was not only met with standing ovations from an ecstatic crowd but also a top review by the major German daily, DIE WELT:

"Engelsstimmen in der Klangkathedrale - Paul Hillier und sein Theatre of Voices bescheren der Elbphilharmonie eine Sternstunde des Chorgesangs"

2019 year takes off with quite a season highlight on Sunday 13th January in one of the world’s most spectacular concert halls, the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg. Tickets have long been sold out for this Sunday!

Theatre of Voices has been invited by NDR to explore the great hall with a concert of purely a cappella music. Our artistic director Paul Hillier has put together a program that features both early music from Machaut to Cage, Pärt, Goebbels and Jóhannsson.

The centerpiece of the program will be the world premiere of Michael Gordon’s “A Western” - a work based partly on the story line of the western movie classic ‘High Noon’. Gun fire and all !

If you can't make it to Hamburg, join us in Copenhagen where we will perform a comprehensive selection of the program at a free afternoon concert on Friday 11th January at Trinitatis Church.

This weekend, Kaija Saariaho’s opera “Only the Sound Remains” has its US premiere in New York with two performances Saturday and Sunday at Lincoln Center’s Rose Theater.

It’s the third production this year alone of “Only the Sound Remains” – a music theatre, based on Ezra Pound’s translations of two Japanese Noh plays, which enjoyed critical acclaim at Paris’ Palais Garnier in January and most recently at Teatro Real in Madrid.

Theatre of Voices appeared in both productions with the rest of an outstanding team of artists: Philippe Jarrousky and Davóne Tines, fellow ensemble players in Meta4 Quartet as well as instrumentalists Eija Kankaanranta, Camilla Hoitenga and Heikki Parviainen – all conducted by Ernest Martínez Izquierdo.
