He doesn’t sing or play the cello (as far as I know) but one of my favorite composers in the whole wide world is Erkki-Sven Tüür, another of those masterful Estonians we hear a lot about.  I would say that even if I didn’t know that he is a faithful and longtime reader of Sequenza21.  But, I digress.  The Estonian Philharmonic Choir, with the  Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Tõnu Kaljuste, will be performing two of Erkki-Sven’s choral pieces next Monday night at The Community Church of New York, 40 East 35th Street.  There are also pieces by Tõnu Kõrvits and somebody named Arvo Pärt.

Here’s the best part.  The concert is free, as in you don’t have to pay anything to get in.

    Hi Jerry. This sounds like a great show and I’m sorry I’ll miss it.

    Which recordings of his work would you recommend?

    I’m pretty sure that doesn’t mean “nudist music” although I must admit that I saw Gidon Kremer’s (yes, I know he’s a Latvian) Kremerata a few years back and immediately voted it the classical music ensemble I would most like to see naked.
