Golden Days Concert – Borups Folk High School, Copenhagen

In collaboration with Golden Days, author Bjørn Bredal and Borup Folk High School, Mogens Dahl Chamber Choir present a concert in which the music, the song and the living word tell a love story whose focal point is Copenhagen, as Søren Ulrik Thomsen among others describes the city in his sensualized poems.

The music goes a long way with Liebeslieder by Johannes Brahms and sonnets by Claudio Monteverdi. Michael Strunge also appears as a true romantic, when love combined with poetry opens for a cosmic and boundary-exceeding experience – set in Bent Sørensen’s sparse and transparent chorusing.
