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

Towns & Villages

Society and the economy have many faces. Whereas agriculture is the mainstay of rural areas, the towns depend upon fishing, industry, trade and a range of services, with each village having its own characteristics though they all prove hospitable hosts. 
The availability of food and accommodation and the possibilities at every location for recreation and entertainment make hopping between the villages informative as well as fun.   
In every case, the residents are lively and ready to celebrate.
