This exceptional Grammy-winning ensemble filled fill the Usher Hall with the breathtaking choral sounds of the Baltic; works by Arvo Pärt and Veljo Tormis, central to the choir’s repertoire, are performed alongside pieces by Sibelius, Tulev and Bergman. ‘Conductor Paul Hillier is a longtime collaborator and biographer of Arvo Pärt. Together there are no finer exponents of this repertoire. Paul Hillier conducted the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir with great panache… the singing Estonians, with their ethereally beautiful blend and uncannily precise ensemble, are a delight throughout.’
