In C
Terry Riley, composer

Ars Nova Copenhagen
Percurama Percussion Ensemble
Paul Hillier, conductor

Terry Riley¹s masterpiece In C - the work with which American minimalism signed its name in the history book of music. From Ars Nova Records comes this fresh version recorded for the first time by voices and mallet instruments.
The blend of voices and percussion is very satisfying; both homogenous and also detailed ... it comes close to perfection.
(Limelight Magazine)

Ars Nova og Percurama Percussion Ensemble er under ledelse af Paul Hillier aktuel med en glimrende indspilning af Terry Rileys "In C".
(***** Berlingske Tidende, Søren H. Schauser)

Spændende og anderledes ...Sangere og musikere formår at skabe dynamik og intensitet i hver enkelt tone, og det skal de have stor ros for.
(Musikeren, 01/2007)

Undervejs vil man opleve passager af stor suggerende kraft, ja musikken kan blive helt hypnotisk. Ars Nova, Percurama Percussion Ensemble og dirigenten Paul Hillier opfører musikken med stor indlevelse og en overordnet ro.
(***** Århus Stifttidende)

Sung chords form and reform, swell and die, like shifting sands as the vocalists, using not words but "sacred syllables", take up new motifs in order. Each performance is different but this one achieves a gripping, transcendent beauty.
(***** The Times, Rick Jones)

The voices and mallet instruments interact beautifully.... In short, we have a fresh, compelling, lovingly executed, and gorgeously engineered interpretation that all In C fans should hear.
(10/10 Classics Today)

Riley har formået at skabe en musik, der på en gang er tonal og minimalistisk, formel og fri. Når den fremføres af to ensembler med så høj kvalitet som Ars Nova og Percurama, bliver oplevelsen bare uforglemmelig.
(Flensborg Avis ****)

You’d think at this stage 43 years later that it would be virtually impossible to conceive of an entirely new way to perform "In C" but Paul Hillier has in this wonderful all-vocal version supplemented only by marimbas and vibraphone.
(**** New Music)

Now conductor Paul Hillier and two Danish groups -- the chorus Ars Nova Copenhagen and the percussion ensemble Percurama -- conjure up a new and ravishingly beautiful "In C," scored exclusively for voices and mallet instruments. The effect is stupendous.
(San Francisco Chronicle, March 4th, 2007)

Als wegweisendes Werk des zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts gehört es in jeden Plattenschrank, unabhängig von persönlichen Vorlieben. Und wenn es in einer so tiefsinnig umgesetzten Weise dargeboten wird wie hier, erst recht!

...Terry Riley´s "In C" fra 1964 får den flotteste og mest inciterende udførelse.
(**** Jyllandsposten, John Christiansen)

The result is a heightened sensuality that makes the piece enjoyable to a wider audience and more absorbing than ever.
(**** Philadelphia Inquirer)

The amazing thing is what an emotional lift the piece - in this version, about an hour long -can give you. Gorgeous stuff to dream or space out by.
(Dallas Morning News)

A thoroughly convincing reading, sung amiably, played precisely and with ideal recorded sound.
