Series T1 - Radiant Voices
In this concert series you can look forward to experiencing a succession of powerful song soloists surrounded by choir and orchestra on stage at DR Koncerthuset.
When the chorus of voices combines with the sound from the great, swelling symphony orchestra, something very special happens. In this series of concerts, a wide variety of song soloists currently sought after by the world’s leading opera and concert stages, will grapple with deep, human emotions and some of life’s great existential themes.
The young soprano Elsa Dreisig sings about the eternal light in Mahler’s Resurrection Symphony, and Barbara Hannigan takes the stage in a spectacular tour de force as both conductor and soloist, while a whole team of our leading Danish opera singers (Johan Reuter, amongst others) dazzle with the eccentric doomsday spectacle Antichrist.
This mighty musical energy is held together by great conductors like Fabio Luisi, Christoph Eschenbach and Vasily Petrenko. In addition, two of Denmark’s internationally known conductors will also appear on the podium in this series, namely Thomas Søndergård and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra’s previous Chief Conductor Thomas Dausgaard.
