The Copenhagen Chamber Choir CAMERATA  


The Copenhagen Chamber Choir CAMERA TA was founded in 1965 and is considered one of Denmark’s leading chamber choirs. CAMERATA is a professionally run amateur choir of 25 experienced singers conducted by the young conductor Jakob Hultberg. CAMERATA’s repertoire covers a wide range from sacred to light music, but at the core lies Western European choral music. CAMERATA does many a cappella concerts and tours both at home and abroad, visiting countries such as Chile, Brazil, Estonia, England, Australia, Canada, and, most recently, Japan in 2011. CAMERATA usually performs two oratorios every year. For more than 20 years, Handel’s The Messiah has attracted a full house in Holmen Church, Copenhagen, three nights before Christmas. Other recurring oratorios are Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions and Mozart’s Requiem. CAMERATA has recorded several CDs, counting works by Carl Nielsen, Vagn Holmboe, Poul Ruders and most recently Vagn Nørgaard, as well as recordings with lyrics by Danish poets set to music. The choir’s recording of The Messiah won Best Classical Release at the Danish Grammy Awards in 1999. CAMERATA is an important player on the Danish musical scene. Through collaborations with both established and upcoming orchestras, soloists and composers, the choir aims to further a constant development of the classical music scene. In September 2006 the choir was awarded the European Choir Prize presented by His Royal Highness Prince Henrik, and in 2008 the choir won 1st prize at the Vagn Holmboe Competition in Horsens. In 2010, CAMERATA won 2nd prize at Aarhus International Choir Competition.

MARTIN LUTZ There is a spell upon your lips
[..] "Det er gjort så fint og afbalanceret, at man som lytter indlever sig i den, som man kan gøre det i religiøs musik fra Mozart til Stravinskij, men den er som nævnt også tilsat et anderledes, spændende ”moderne” element, om man vil. [..]
