MUSICA FICTA

Musica Ficta, based in Copenhagen, is a professional vocal ensemble, founded in 1996 by the composer and conductor Bo Holten. With Musica Ficta, Holten has realised his vision of creating a highly flexible ensemble, where the classical Oxbridge early music ideal is combined with the warmth of the Scandinavian choral sound. The ensemble works exclusively on thematic projects, enhancing the musical experience by letting historical, literary and philosophical perspectives play an active role in programming, as well as in the spoken introductions during the concerts. This has resulted in a series of musical events where location, texts, illustrations and narration have combined to give the audience a deeper understanding and experience of an epoch, an artist/composer or a musical genre. Recently, Musica Ficta and Bo Holten have dedicated themselves to the genre of Italian madrigals from the late Renaissance and especially to the music of the Italian composer Carlo Gesualdo (1566–1613). The ensemble launched a three-year project on embellishments and improvisation in the genre of madrigals, exploring the possibilities of this music. The ensemble is also specialised in vocal music of the most important Danish composers from the Romantic era and beyond. Danish song is the heartbeat of Danish culture and Musica Ficta represents this tradition with the deepest dedication and skill.
