The contemporary vocal music of the Baltic states is infused with the timeless resonances of a folk tradition dating back to pagan times, and created a sensation when it was first unleashed upon European concert halls in the second half of the 20th century. This very special programme from the acclaimed SWR Vokalensemble represents the most eloquent and sophisticated choral repertoire of this region. Veljo Tormis' intense folk song arrangements, and compelling works by Peteris Vasks and Arvo Part are included next to music of entrancing colors, heard in remarkable settings by a younger generation of award-winning composers.
