Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Kaspars Putninš, conductor

The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir embodies a very particular choral tradition - with one eye on the Russian vocal heritage, another looking very definitely west. Their relationship with Arvo Pärt is famous, but tonight they broaden that picture with music by his compatriots and Jonathan Harvey.
