Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and Helsinki Chamber Choir together:
FRANK MARTIN: Mass for Double Choir

The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and Helsinki Chamber mark three major composer anniversaries in a joint programme that brings together these two Grammy-Award-winning ensembles for the first time. 50 years on from the death of Frank Martin, the choirs combine forces to perform his Mass for double choir, one of the great choral masterpieces of the twentieth century. The concert opens with three expressive motets by Anton Bruckner, marking his 200th birthday. It also features a selection of choral pieces by the hugely influential Arnold Schoenberg – who would have been 150 years old in 2024 – including a powerful and deeply felt setting of Psalm 130 (De profundis), his last completed work.
