Notes & Reviews:

Estonia was slow to emerge on the musical scene, due partly to the strictures place on it by the ruling Russians. It was dependent on St. Petersburg for its musicl heritage and though it always had a strong choral tradition, orchestral concerts of any regularity did not really get under way until 1896. This disc documents how far Estonian music has come, from the romantic early works of its spiritual father, Heino Eller, to the experimental music of Arvo Part.
