Description

LMIC 131

Grammy award winning Latvian Radio Choir and conductor Kaspars Putnins join forces with instrumentalists and bring Vilums' choral music to the wider audience, introducing a series of world premiere recordings of works composed between 2006 and 2018.
Latvian contemporary composer Martins Vilums (born 1974) is rich with inspiration, an active, true, deep creativity, as well as spirituality. The complexity of his musical style - use of microtonal and overtone-singing, self-created phoneme systems, ancient and self-developed demonic and demigod languages, synthesized sounds and unique instrumentations never overshadow the genuine spiritual experience his music brings.
