This collection of short works by Arvo Pärt features a cappella music and some lightly accompanied by an organ. Conducting the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is Paul Hillier, one of Pärt's most celebrated interpreters and the author of a book-length study of his music. Hillier came to Pärt from the field of early music, and in his notes he stresses affinities between Pärt and the composers of medieval and Renaissance eras. Pärt rarely uses music to directly illustrate the text, for example. Instead, just as a composer of five centuries ago might do, he selects a pitch environment and elaborates it through the placement and manipulation of sonorities. Hillier points out Pärt's liking for chains of first-inversion chords and for the so-called Landini cadence, linking those to music of the fourteenth century, especially in England. The comparison to pre-Renaissance English music is a good one more generally as well: Pärt can be very quiet, and his music does bring to mind, as Hillier says of the opening Da pacem Domine, stones placed with exquisite care in a Zen garden. But he also has a grand manner that can't be described as minimal; even in small-scale pieces like these there are moments where he brings forces together to heighten the music's intensity. The effect is like that of music by Leonel Power and the other composers of the Old Hall manuscript: stark, but also big at times. All this goes to show that Hillier, always a strong interpreter of Pärt's music, is superb here. The sound he obtains from the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is both beautiful and impersonal; he focuses not on the tonal conservatism of Pärt's music but on its structures and details. There is little sweetness, but there is an uncanny feel for the way the music slowly unfolds. Hear the composer's setting of Psalm 131 (track 4), the second of the Two Slavic Psalms, as it begins with subtle establishment of relationships among tones of a simple pentachord and builds a long ascent in intensity out of them. Other conductors may get a slightly more virtuosic interpretation of Pärt's tintinnabulation (bell-effect) technique out of their choirs, but none will have a better feel for where it fits in to the overall structure of a work. This is an excellent choice for anyone contemplating a first Pärt purchase as well as for those who have been following his career and its highly successful promotion on Hillier's part. © TiVo

Chorwerk (für den Chor) - Erschienen am 4. Juni 2021 | BIS

Hi-Res Booklet
Nachdem Alfred Schnittke in den 1980er Jahren oft gespielt wurde, ist seine Musik seit seinem Tod im Jahr 1998 in eine Art Winterschlaf verfallen. Einige wenige Interpreten sind ihm treu geblieben. So etwa der Estnische Philharmonische Kammerchor und sein Dirigent Kaspars Putniņš mit dieser schönen Einspielung eines von Schnittkes wegweisenden Werken, seinem Konzert für Chor. Er hat es 1984 auf Anregung von Valery Polyansky, dem damaligen Leiter des Chors des sowjetischen Kulturministeriums, komponiert, der das Werk auch zur Uraufführung brachte. Aus dem gleichen Jahr stammen auch die Drei geistlichen Gesänge für gemischten Chor. Dieses kraftvolle Werk richtet sich an alle, Gerechte, Sünder, Reiche, Arme, und an alle Religionen. Es steht im Einklang mit Schnittkes eigener Geschichte, dessen Eltern, ein deutsch-jüdischer Vater und eine katholische Mutter, nicht gläubig waren. Sein religiöses Empfinden verdankte er seiner Großmutter, einer überzeugten Katholikin, weshalb er sich in den 1980er Jahren katholisch taufen ließ. Arvo Pärt komponierte seine Sieben Magnificat-Antiphonen für das 40-jährige Jubiläum des berühmten RIAS-Kammerchors Berlin, der sie 1988 in West-Berlin uraufführte. Jede Antiphon trägt einen Namen Christi aus den alttestamentlichen Prophezeiungen und ist in dem für den lettischen Komponisten typischen Tintinnabuli-Stil geschrieben. Kaspars Putninš dirigiert den Estnischen Philharmonischen Kammerchor seit 2014. Er arbeitet mit einem breiten Repertoire, das von der Renaissance bis zur Gegenwart reicht und konzentriert sich besonders auf die neue Chormusik, die derzeit vor allem in Nordeuropa und in den ehemaligen Satellitenstaaten der Sowjetunion eine neue Blütezeit erlebt. © François Hudry/Qobuz
