Estonia is an extraordinary country. A bit Scandinavian, a bit continental. However, its contemporary history is very close to our Polish hearts. So, will we fall in love with their music? We cordially invite you on Tuesday 9th of May at 19:00 to the Philharmonic, where the most famous Estonian musical export, Collegium Musicale, will perform for you. Tickets, 20-10 pln, may be purchased at the ticket office of the Philharmonic or online at filharmonia.szczecin.pl
The choir was established by young conductor Endrik Üksvärav in October 2010, and has been winning hearts and gaining awards all over the world. The choir's repertoire is wide, ranging from Renaissance songs to contemporary music. Three artists have a special place in the ensemble: neoclassicist Arvo Pärt, one of the greatest choral composers Veljo Tormis, and Erkii-Sven Tüür who is connected with the rock scene.
Collegium Musicale are true ambassadors of Estonian music. The choir cooperates with orchestras and ensembles from all over the world, not just from their home town of Tallin. They have performed for audiences in Italy, France, Germany, Malta and Japan. The Estonian Choral Association has twice awarded Collegium Musicale ‘Choir of the Year’, 2011 and 2014. Their album ‘Peegel peeglis’, which includes Arvo Pärt's compositions, received an award for the best album with choral music in Estonia in 2012.
