Danish National Girls Choir  

ensemble

Since its foundation in 1938 the Danish National Girls’ Choir / DR has been synonymous with Danish song and the pure Nordic sound. Every year the choir sings more than 60 concerts in Denmark and is always met with great interest in full churches and concert halls. The Danish National Girls’ Choir/DR has also been on several tours to among other countries France, England, Russia, China and Australia. The choir has the great honour of having Alexandra Christina, Countess of Frederiksborg as its patron.

Carl Nielsen sunget af DRs kor
"All the groups are wonderful, even the children [..] What comes through again and again is the beauty of Nielsen’s writing, heavily triadic with sparing dissonance and no hint of dark emotion." [..]

Carl Nielsen sunget af DRs kor
“The hero of Dacapo’s recent recording of Nielsen’s ensemble songs isn’t so much the composer himself as DR (…) whose comprehensive upward-feeding choral system is profiled in its entirety here. Denmark is singing very well, and with a system like this, will continue to do so.”

Carl Nielsen sunget af DRs kor

Det umuliges kunst
"Lige som kirken er koncertsalen et rum, hvor det store, det eksistentielle og det ufattelige kan rummes, og hvor der er plads til andagtsstemning, og det mærker man også et aftryk af på en indspilning som denne, særligt når musikken har en kvalitet og historisk rodfæstethed som hos Frandsen."

Mennesket, døden og troen
4/6 Stars
