Notes & Reviews:

"(Tormis') music is tonal but steeped in close-voicings, pungent dissonances, often dense textures, and wide vocal and dynamic range. The musical material is most often rooted in folksong, drawing from traditional poetic texts and profoundly meaningful works such as the Finnish national epic, the KalevalaThe 20 singers of this Swedish choir yield to no one in virtuoso technique and musicianship, and their sound is lovely, youthful, and vibrant. From the opening work--a rousing chanting piece whose "text" is simply the word "Tabu!" (taboo)--you know this program is going to be both engaging and uniqueFirst-rate sound and Tormis' personal notes on the music ensure the highest recommendation for this compelling, essential release." -Classics Today (10/10)
