For their second release on Ondine, the acclaimed Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir under chief conductor Daniel Reuss perform Psalm settings by Felix Mendelssohn and Estonian composer Cyrillus Kreek.

The first release on Ondine from the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir was an ‘Editor’s Choice’ in Gramophone and awarded ‘Disc of the Year’ by German weekly DIE ZEIT.

Cyrillus Kreek, a graduate of the St Petersburg Conservatory and a collector of folk songs, laid the foundation for Estonian professional music.

This unique coupling highlights the familiarities in vocal and harmonic setting between Mendelssohn and Kreek.

Gramophone Magazine

September 2012

“Reuss draws impassioned and mellifluous performances from his Grammy Award-winning choir of 24 voices. Its beautifully blended, creamy tone (especially in the altos) and clarion-like tenors are underpinned by warm basses.”

MusicWeb International

August 2012

“outstanding performances from this marvellous choir. We need not concern ourselves with such matters as intonation, balance and blend, so accomplished is the singing...hearing this choir in almost any repertoire tends to have the same effect as hearing the music of Cyrillus Kreek - once you have experienced it you immediately start to look for more.”
