READ ABOUT >>> Per Nørgård

The ensemble Vocal Group Ars Nova, consisting of twelve singers, is one of Scandinavia’s leading chamber Choirs in the field of polyphonic Renaissance choral music and experimental vocal music of our own period. Ars Nova has recorded many internationally acclaimed CD's and has given more than a thousand concerts in Europe, Israel, Japan, Africa, South America and USA. Ars Nova was started in 1979 by a group of singers and the conductor Bo Holten. Since 1996 Hungarian-born Tamás Vetö has been the principal conductor of the choir. Ars Nova has worked with prominent conductors like Peter Philips (The Tallis Scholars), Bruno Turner (Pro Cantione Antiqua) and Paul Hillier (The Hilliard Ensemble, Theatre of Voices), the regular guest conductor of the ensemble since 1997. Ars Nova has been among the pioneers in work on polyphonic Renaissance choral music, with highly acclaimed performances of the masterpieces of the period, by composers like des Prez, Tallis, di Lasso, Palestrina and Taverner; the choir has also rediscovered neglected masters like Pierre de la Rue, Nicolas Gombert, Philipe de Magalhaes, Giaches de Wert, Alonso and Duante Lobo, Manuel Cardoso and Jacob Obrecht, to whom Ars Nova and Paul Hillier have devoted a whole CD. In avant-garde music Ars Nova focuses on music after 1968 and in this connection has worked closely with Nordic composers like Per Nørgård, Ib Nørholm, Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen, Sven-David Sandstrøm, Poul Ruders and Hans Abrahamsen, all of whom have written works for the ensemble. The same applies to central jazz composers like Jan Gabarek, Palle Mikkelborg, Pierre Dørge, Marilyn Mazur and Egberto Gismonti. Ars Nova also works with contemporary music drama, and has collaborated with among others Bill Forsythe (the Stuttgart Ballet), Peter Langdal (Betty Nansen Theatre) and Kirsten Dehlholm (Billedstofteater and Hotel Pro Forma), whose Operation: Orfeo Ars Nova premiered in 1993 and has appeared in since. Ars Nova has been responsible for more than 150 first performances, and the repertoire includes works by Takemitsu, Gorecki, Pärt, Riley and John Cage, whose choral works Ars Nova recorded on CD in 1998.
Ars Nova was awarded the Danish Music Critics' Artist's Prize in 1998, a Danish Grammy in 1991 for the recording of sacred music by Nicolas Gombert, and a Diapason d'Or (France) for their CD of works by Josquin des Prez.


Jens Schou trained at the Royal Danish Academy of Music. After his first concert in 1972 he went to Vienna for further studies. In 1972 he received the Artists' Award of the Danish Music Critics. He was a member of the Odense Symphony Orchestra from 1969 to 1988, from 1981 as principal clarinettist. Since 1988 he has been a lecturer at the Carl Nielsen Academy of Music, Odense, Denmark. He frequently performs at concerts and has made numerous recordings.


Tamás Vetö was born in Budapest, Hungary. He studied at the Franz Liszt Academy - both as a pianist and conductor - and later he studied with Nadia Boulanger in Paris. In 1957 he moved to Denmark.



Vetö has conducted numerous symphony orchestra concerts with all Danish, including the Danish National Radio Orchestra, and most Scandinavian orchestras. Between 1981-84 he was the principal conductor of the National Theatre, Mannheim in Germany, and 1984-87 he was chief conductor of the Danish Odense Symphony Orchestra. Tamás Vetö also guestcon- ducted in Holland, Belgium, France, New Zealand, USA, USSR, Spain, Italy, Finland and Estonia. During the years 1985-93 he also guestconducted at the Marseilles Opera, France. Since 1961, Tamás Vetö has often conducted the Danish National Radio Choir and for 18 years he has been choir instructor of the Royal Opera Choir. From 1996 to 2000 he was chief conductor of the Danish vocal group ARS NOVA Copenhagen. Presently, he also teaches at the Royal Danish Opera Academy.
Vetö has an extensive repertoire and he is recognised as an outstanding enterpreter - especially in the field of contemporary music. In this capacity he has made the first European performance of Witold Lutoslawski's 3rd Symphony along with a long row of performances of contemporary Danish music. His CD recordings of contemporary Danish music includes works by Nielsen, Langgaard, Ruders, Nørholm, Nørgård and many others.
Opera productions include Wagner's Tristan und Isolde at the Marseilles Opera in 1992 and the complete Der Ring des Niebelungen at the National Danish Opera in 1996. Also in 1996, He conducted Strawinsky's The Rake's Progress at the National Danish Opera - where, in August 1998, he is conducting Richard Strauss' Electra. 1998 began in Odense with a very succesfull concert production of Wagner's Tristan and Isolde. Vetö continues his work in France and also gives master classes at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in Copenhagen.


Per Nørgård is the most significant Danish composer after Carl Nielsen and Vagn Holmboe. With his original works, his teaching and his theoretical innovations, Per Nørgård has been the most striking Nordic musical personality for over thirty years. At a young age he became a private pupil of Vagn Holmboe, and his earliest works were in the master’s 'Nordic” idiom with Sibelius as a shared guiding star. The First Symphony and the string works Constellations are the high points of this period. Nørgård’s incredibly sensitive curiosity drove him to explore the potential of Central European Modernism. But after a few years he arrived at his own serial technique, the 'infinity series”, the mechanisms of which can be compared to the growth and symmetry of nature. Using this technique, Nørgård wrote some of his most important works, for example the Third Symphony. In the 1980s Nørgård concentrated on the opposite of the harmony of the infinity series: chaos and fragmentation typify his works, inspired by the schizophrenic Swiss artist Adolf Wölfli. Most recently, in the 1990s, he has worked with sophisticated layerings of rhythms and lines, and has focused on the effects of 'interference” in his quest to capture the music that otherwise escapes our ears. Per Nørgård has written works of all sizes, from operas to simple choral songs (he once heard one hummed in the local supermarket, to his great satisfaction). Even for the general public without any great interest in music, Per Nørgård is the 'modern Danish composer” par excellence.
