Album features world premiere recordings of new choral repertoire by Latvian composers Vasks, Esenvalds, Karlsons, Selickis, Einfelde, Nimanis, Maskats, Nimanis and Vilums.
Evening Impression is a selection of aesthetically pleasing and atmospheric music by contemporary Latvian composers, repertoire that is at the very core of Latvian Radio Choir. LRC is a unique musical group in the domain of choral music - here is a chamber choir able to perform the widest repertoire from early music to the most sophisticated scores created by modern composers. The Latvian Radio Choir is a creative lab insistently encouraging composers to write music that challenges the scale of vocal possibilities - from traditional singing to overtones and quarter tones. LRC regularly tours the most prestigious venues and events of the world - from annual BBC Proms appearances to regular concert tours throughout Europe, USA and Japan.
This LRC album follows a series of critically acclaimed previous releases on SKANI label - “Daugava”, “Nature and the Soul” and “Fruit of Silence”.
