These flawless singers, renowned for the shimmering quality of their sound, return to Duke Chapel following their triumphant sold-out 2013 performance. Their program features works by two of the greatest living choral composers: Pärt, whose luminous compositions look back to medieval and renaissance music, and Pärt’s countryman Veljo Tormis, who draws inspiration from Estonian folk songs. Rounding out the program are rarely-performed masterpieces by Tchaikovsky — Nine Sacred Pieces — and Sibelius — the folk-based Partsongs.
Arvo Pärt: Solfeggio, Nunc Dimittis, The Woman with the Alabaster Box, Dopo La Vittoria
Tchaikovsky: Selections from Nine Sacred Pieces: Nos. 3, 7, and 9
Veljo Tormis: Towerbell of my Village, Curse Upon Iron
Sibelius: Selections from 6 Partsongs, op. 18: Song of my Heart, Beloved, Fire on the Island
