Nordic Voices press reviews
"Nordic voices is a mixed, six-voice ensemble with ringing, clear timbres and an impressive blend."
"...the group charged the evening with entirely unaccompanied singing no less than extraordinary -- even far beyond the basic yardstick measurements. Intonation? Impeccable. Ensemble? Unfailing precision in phrasing, dynamics, color -- everything finely tuned for a succession of works ever-changing in style and expressive meaning."
"...the richness of the Nordic Voices flooded the immensity of the concert hall....left everyone in the audience with the perfect blend of sensations reminiscent of this emotional experience, a mixture as varied and delightful as the evening’s performance..."
The China Post (Taipei)
"Impeccable intonation combined with incredibly dulcet melodious phasing permeated this performance."
Yellow Springs News
"Nordic Voices are a force to be reckoned with, as much because of their adventurousness and range as because of their specialty and expertise in choral music."
The Live Music Report (www.thelivemusicreport.com)
"The singing was excellent, sharp as a knife, and the balance was beyond reproach." Morgunbladid, Reykjavik, Iceland
"The a cappella ensemble combined modality and atonality, and text-setting styles ranging from the sublime to the delightfully ridiculous, into a seamless argument - that Scandinavian choral music is a beautiful world unto itself."
'With its virtuous and humor-filled interpretation of Ligeti's "Nonsense Madrigals", Nordic Voices seizes any audience." Stavanger Aftenblad, Stavanger
"...the songs open up many possibilities for creating nuances and making musical points. Nordic Voices never missed any of these opportunities, but let blessed Monteverdi and Gesualdo appear with all the resounding rhetoric ever desired." Tønsberg Blad
"The Church Music Festival seemed to have reached new heights this year, and the concert by Nordic Voices was no exception. Every soloist had an exceptional voice, all of which combined to make the perfect instrument." Morgunbladid, Reykjavik, Iceland
"The vocal ensemble Nordic Voices, showing off a clear and secure intonation, virginal pureness and lots of temperament, performed three songs of the eccentric Italian composer Giacinto Scelsi." Värt Land, Oslo, Norway
