In this concert Theatre of Voices performs another setting of a Hans Christian Andersen text; The Little Mermaid. Since 2007 the group has toured worldwide with David Lang’s music to The Little Match Girl, but here Danish composer Bo Lundby-Jæger has taken up one of Andersen’s most famous and well-loved tales of unrequited love and sacrifice.The piece is part of a group of works for chamber orchestra and voices that the composer has written for a collaboration with the University of São Paulo / Ribeirão Preto and their choir and orchestra. Here, we present them in versions especially tailored for Theatre of Voices and Ensemble Storstrøm.
