This new album by the award-winning Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir together with the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra led by Risto Joost includes a recent work by Tõnu Kõrvits – You Are Light and Morning (Sei la luce e il mattino). Kõrvits, one of the most prominent Estonian composers of our time, has created an impressive 60-minute piece for choir and orchestra based on the poetry of 20th-century Italian writer Cesare Pavese. The work was premiered by the choir and orchestra in Tallinn in June 2019 and was hailed by many as one of Kõrvits’ greatest achievements.
