KOTTOS - with energy and feeling

KOTTOS's debutalbum sensationally won the Danish Radio P2's Listeners Prize 2017 against other nominees such as The Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra and Arvo Pärt.
Besides creating and performing their own compositions KOTTOS is working with some of today’s prominent Nordic composers, that dedicate works specifically for KOTTOS’ unusual mix of instruments. These works include the Faroese composer Sunleif Rasmussen’s cantata “En Drøm” on a text by Ursula Andkjær Olsen and the new opera by John Frandsen “Martyriet”, about Kaj Munk’s life, that KOTTOS premiered in January 2017 at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen.

Besides performing new works, KOTTOS often features baroque and renaissance music in their repertoire. An ongoing cooperation with the vocal ensemble Musica Ficta conducted by Bo Holten, has already resulted in a reinvented chamber version of Händel’s “Messiah” in December 2015, receiving 5 stars in Politiken and a great audience response.

KOTTOS is:
Bjarke Mogensen, accordion 
Josefine Opsahl, cello
Pernille Petersen, recorders 
Christos Farmakis, bouzouki
