Press review

Erkki-Sven Tüür is surely one of the most consistently high-quality composers around. (...) When the bolder, more stylistically emancipated perspectives of his recent music meet the direct, almost vibrator-less timbres of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, the results are more than musically impressive; they are spiritually stirring.
David Fanning, Gramophone, February 2012, 'Editor's Choice'

Beautifully delivered by the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir under Daniel Reuss (...).
Andrew Clements, The Guardian, 23.12.2011
