Classical Archives Features Exclusive Interviews With Famed Choral Director Paul Hillier With FREE Classical Intro Concerts for All Visitors

Palo Alto, CA -- Classical Archives (, the ultimate classical music destination, proudly presents a high-profile Exclusive Interview with acclaimed choral director Paul Hillier, founder of the legendary vocal group, the Hilliard Ensemble

In a rich discussion with Artistic Director Dr. Nolan Gasser, Paul Hillier discusses the diversity of his past and present career, as a singer, writer, and choral director. Mr. Hillier rose to fame as the founder of the Hilliard Ensemble, among the initial driving forces of the Early Music movement in the 1970s and 1980s famed for their recordings of music by Perotin, Ockeghem, Tallis, and others. Since leaving the Hilliard Ensemble in 1989, Mr. Hillier has led a number of vocal groups, most notably Theater of Voices, and has extended beyond early music to embrace especially Contemporary music as well. Among his most recent recordings is that of David Langs The Little Match Girl Passion, commissioned by Mr. Hillier, and recipient of the 2008 Pulitzer Prize in music. In this in-depth and entertaining interview, Mr. Hillier discusses all this and more, including his refreshing attitude toward music: Its like when people go into an art gallery: they dont only look at one kind of painting; they look at a whole range, and maybe find their favorite painters in each sectionĶ For me, its the same with music. A must read!
