Bo Holten

Publisher: Edition Wilhelm Hansen

...Composer/conductor Bo Holten is a significant figure in contemporary choral music. With his founding of the vocal ensemble Ars Nova in 1979, he brought both renaissance and modern music to the attention of new audiences, while with his own music he showed how you can create vital new sounds without resorting to the latest avant-garde music or clever compositional gimmick - Classics Today


... [Bo Holten] entertains with simple dramaturgy and grabs the audience with clean melodic lines - Henrik Friis, Politiken


...Bo Holten is one the hardest-working composers and conductors in Danish music culture – to me it seems almost incomprehensible that he is self-taught in both areas – Peter Dürrfeld, Kristeligt Dagblad
