Paul Hillier, artistic director
With “My end is my beginning,” the gorgeous voices of Ars Nova Copenhagen link the worlds of Machaut and Gibbons to those of the 20th-century and beyond. Known for their performances of early and new music, the ensemble led by Paul Hillier is equally at home voicing the Cries of London and Copenhagen. The second half of their concert is devoted to a recent work by Caroline Shaw, the title of which suggests some delicate origami in its construction.
