Nordic Voices, Ensemble Ernst and New York
The excellent Norwegian a capella group Nordic Voices will perform three of The Bee Madrigals in France on May 17th (the Norwegian National Day) at the festival De la Voix in Chateauroux. They will perform together with saxophone player Jean-Marc Larché, who will improvise over two of the madrigals. Exciting! The three madrigals to be performed are I´m no Alien, Spring Without Voices and Still in Silence. Listen at all streaming sevices!
