Sea and sky

An atmospheric concert with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir.

The Eric Ericson Chamber Choir, led by conductor Fredrik Malmberg, will present different perspectives on the ocean at this concert. In Olli Kortekangas’ Välimeri, five songs about the Mediterranean, we will hear the beautiful surroundings and the wild and glittering surface of the water. Swedish Gösta Nystroem, internationally known for his Sinfonia del mare, was obsessed with the ocean. We will hear his Tre havsvisioner (Three Visions of the Sea) for choir here.

One starting point for this concert is the fact that on 28 September 2019, it will have been 25 years since the Estonia catastrophe. This tragedy is poignantly portrayed in Finnish Jaakko Mäntyjärvis’ Canticum calamitatis maritimae, a thought-worthy and evocative requiem dedicated to all those who were lost in the catastrophe.

We will also hear music with powerful spiritual force by Estonian composers Arvo Pärt, Urmas Sisask and Cyrillus Kreek, known for his beautiful Psalms. In addition, evocative choir pieces by Latvian composers Andris Dzenitis and Maija Einfelde.
