Ondine continues its series of works by Baltic composers wtih a new exciting release. This album features Moorland Elegies, a nine-part cycle for mixed choir and string orchestra, is a crowning achievement of its composer Tonu Korvits's magical impressionism. The work was premiered by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra at Tallinn's St. John's Church in October, 2015. Tonu Korvits works belong to the repertoire of the most important Estonian orchestras, choirs and artists. In recent years hi smusic has been performed more and more outside of his native Estonia. Beside Beljo Tormis's shamanistic spells, Erkki-Sven Tuur's energetic explosions and Arvo Part's religious contemplations, Korvits's sound world stands out as highly poetic, full of visionary fantasies. His music carries the lsitener along on hypnotic journeys through the landscapes of nature and folk tradition, human soul and subconscious. His oeuvre includes all traditional genres from orchestral and instrumental music to choral music and operas.
