Arvo Pärt
Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen

Alfred Schnittke
Three Sacred Hymns
Concert for Choir


Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Conductor Kaspars Putniņš


Under the title Breath, the concert will combine the works of Arvo Pärt and Alfred Schnittke, forming a single coherent whole from contrasts navigating the thresholds of fragility and drama. The keywords for the programme – WIND, SOUL and SPIRIT – emerge from the texts underlying the compositions that speak of the soul and spirituality in their own way, lifting us up, causing us to contemplate the depths of human existence, or taking us along with the wind…

The programme will be recorded as a sequel to the album Schnittke. Psalms of Repentance (BIS Records, 2017), which won the prestigious Gramophone award a year ago.


The concert is produced by the Arvo Pärt Centre.
