60 minutes of Bell Orchestre with members of Arcade Fire
Frost Festival proudly presents a string of the most prominent members of the American indie music super league. Together with 70 classical musicians of The Copenhagen Phil-ensemble members of Arcade Fire play in The Royal Danish Academy of Music’s Concert Hall on February 5th, 2015.
Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry and Sarah Neufeld will on this special evening create an irreplaceable musical experience and fill the concert hall with dreamy and thought-provoking classical arrangements. This concert stands out as a one-time experience and will be their first on Danish ground.
In the stunning surroundings of the old wooden concert hall build in 1945, the Montreal instrumental sextet of Bell Orchestre will meet Copenhagen Phil’s ensemble and together explore the backbone of their albums in a new classical landscape.
On the same night Richard Reed Parry will also present us with a sneak peek on a new classical work he has co-created with The National’s Bryce Dessner. This piece is to be premiered in London next summer and the presentation in Copenhagen is therefore a pre-world debut.
