On September 14-17 the EPCC under Daniel Reuss records a cappella sacred choral music by the great romantic composer Felix Mendelssohn and the loved Estonian composer Cyrillus Kreek. The CD includes also Mendelssohn’s “Three Psalms” op 78 and Kreek’s “The Psalms of David”.
Reuss explains the choise with a familiarity between the musical language of Mendelssohn and Kreek. “They both write very vocally but at the same time have a great sense of almost instrumental colour to the choir sound. Besides, their music has subtle harmonies in regard to the text“, says Reuss.
The CD will be released in November 2009.
