Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir - Baltic Voices 3

Acclaimed conductor Paul Hillier and the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir conclude their exploration of the choral riches of the Baltic region with a third and final volume of the Baltic Voices series. The disc features music of established figures in the genre (Bergman, Górecki, Gudmundsen-Holmgreen) and recent works by the younger generation (Saariaho, Tüür). Baltic Voices 3 includes CD premieres of works by Saariaho, Górecki and Tüür. Hillier proves time and again that there’s a huge quantity of highly effective new choral music out there that’s not only entertaining and beautiful but also distinctive and not anachronistic. Highly recommended. 7898 CD 16.98
