Notes and Editorial Reviews

Estonia, under the rule of the Russians, was slow to emerge on the musical scene. It was dependent on St. Petersburg for its musical heritage and though it always had a strong choral tradition, orchestral concerts of any regularity did not really get under way until the late 1890s. This disc documents the journey of Estonian music, from embryonic, romantic, early works of its spiritual father, Heino Eller, to the experimental music of Arvo Pärt.
