Organist Henning Nielsen and the Gribskov Choir kick off the ”Summer Concerts” series with a portrait concert of composer Timothy Baxter.
Sunday June 30, 2013 the first concert of the “Summer Concerts” series in the north of Zealand takes place at Søborg Chuch in Gilleleje. The concert focuses exclusively on music by Timothy Baxter, where audiences can experience Baxter’s organ works, motets, String Quintet and Cantata Respice in Me. The concert is performed by organist and conductor Henning Nielsen, the Gribskov Choir, soprano Cecilia Lindwall, violinists Shannon Hawkes and Arden Lambert, viola player Mikkel Lorentzen, cellists Anders Grøn and Helene Jerg and features Baxter himself as conductor.
Cantata Respice in Me has never been performed before in Denmark, but has received the Frederick Corder Memorial Prize in 1959 and Patron’s Fund in 1964.
The concert series has existed more than 30 years and takes place in churches around the Gribskov area from June 30 to July 26, 2013.
