Almost five hundred years later, five singers with a soft spot for ancient music have joined their voices and created a new ensemble with the very same name: Utopia.
Let’s hear what they have to say about it:
“Having Flemish polyphony in our genes, we really want to explore and perform the music of More’s time. Polyphony is born when different points of view come together in a single composition. To quote the recent words of the German minister of culture: “We need art and culture, we need bold, inconvenient thinkers and artists. We need the utopias they create, the fantasies that inspire them and the wish for a better world”.
