Description

LMIC 075

The new album from the Grammy Award winning Latvian Radio Choir 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 esthetically 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".
