Conducted by Paul Hillier since 2003, Denamarks Ars Nova Copenhagen has built an immovable reputation as one of the worlds most versatile and inventive vocal ensembles. First Drop is testament to that spirit; its a wide-ranging and ambitious project that interprets the choral work of some of the giants of contemporary classical music, including Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Louis Andriessen, Michael Gordon, David Lang and more. Almost all the works on this [release] are first recordings, Hilliar explains, referring to one source of inspiration behind the title.
