Bright Ivy announced as press partners for Ars Nova Copenhagen’s new album
30 April 2017
Bright Ivy is delighted to have been appointed as the press partners for Grammy Award-winning Ars Nova Copenhagen's latest album, First Drop.
Recorded over 10 years, it features first recordings of music by the giants of contemporary music including David Lang, Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Louis Andriessen, Michael Gordon, and Howard Skempton.
First Drop is a testament to the group’s pioneering spirit. The disc is a journey through Ars Nova’s main inspirations: the mysticism of the early music repertoire as reinterpreted by contemporary composers, with or without direct references to symbols and texts of world religions.
With the release of First Drop, the ensemble brings the history of choral music to a full circle, as the early sacred repertoire finds equal emotional content in the music of our times.
First Drop is released on the Cantaloupe Music on the 19th May 2017.
