– Moorland Elegies
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra
Conductor Risto Joost
Tõnu Kõrvits’s „Moorland elegies“ (2015) is an hour-long choir cycle „on texts of Emily Brontë.
The composer has said: „„Moorland Elegies“ is a journey into the darkest, most mysterious corners of loneliness: to where one doesn’t dare to peek twice.“ The selection of poetry in „Moorland Elegies“ contains bright, sorrowful, dramatic, and divine scenes that form no coherent plot. There are only spiritual conditions characterized by a certain poetical abstraction, which develop through natural imagery and spatial impressions. The work was awarded the Cultural Prize of the Republic of Estonia in 2016.
Broadcast 2.11 at St John Church, Tallinn.
