The Estonian National Male Choir, conductor Pärt Uusberg
Pärt Uusberg’s works for texts by Estonian poets Ernst Enno, Juhan Liiv, and Karl Ristikivi.
The Cycle “Ernst Enno avarused…” (“The spaciousness of Ernst Enno…”) (premier)
Choosing the right texts is extremely important to me when writing choir music. My search for perfect texts has allowed me to meet a lot of bright minds during my life whom I have never had the chance to see eye to eye. This concert is all about the texts of three Estonian poets: Ernst Enno, Juhan Liiv, and Karl Ristikivi, whose works I have tried to explore by translating them into music. The concert also premiers the 3-part cycle written for the Estonian National Male Choir “Ernst Enno avarused…” (“The spaciousness of Ernst Enno…”). (Pärt Uusberg)
