AMERICANA: THE AMERICAN SUBLIME

Contributors
MOGENS DAHL CHAMBER CHOIR
TOKE MØLDRUP, CELLO
IB MICHAEL, NARRATOR
MOGENS DAHL, CONDUCTOR

With this concert the chamber choir invites the audience to a musical dream trip to America. America is a dream – but it is also a feeling. We know it from Edward Hopper’s iconic paintings. The special lighting bright as day, the slightly anonymous human figures and openness toward the endless open spaces and landscapes. And at the same time, beneath this, also the rootlessness, the fear of emptiness and the all-too-smooth surface. It is not for nothing that the USA is also the cradle of pop art and minimalism. The blank canvas. The almost provocative simplicity.
