Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir at Festivalil Spiegel im Spiegel

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir at Festivalil Spiegel im Spiegel

The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir participates at the festivalil Spiegel im Spiegel in Moscow to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Estonian Republic.

The programme features Arvo Pärt’s “Kanon pokajanen” (1997), which will be performed at the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cathedral in Moscow. “Kanon pokajanen” is based on the canon of repentance, which already appears in the earliest Church Slavonic manuscripts. Arvo Pärt discovered that text many years ago, when he became involved in the tradition of the Russian Orthodox Church and it made a profound impression on him. The composer has said that he had tried to use language as a point of departure. „I wanted the word to be able to find its own sound, to draw its own melodic line. The resulting music is entirely immersed in the particular character of Church Slavonic, a language used exclusively in ecclesiastical texts.” The EPCC has performed this work at meny venues and festivals all over the world.

The concert is produced by Festival Spiegel im Spiegel

In 2018, Estonia celebrates its 100th birthday

Estonia wishes to share its birthday with you in Estonia and abroad. The programme includes best parts of Estonian culture, IT, science and enterprises.

Celebrations will kick off in April 2017 to mark a century since Estonia’s administrative borders took their current form, will continue throughout 2018 and 2019, and come to a grand close on the 2nd February 2020 when the 100th anniversary of the Tartu Peace Treaty will be honoured.

This is a celebration we can all take part in and it is up to us to make it memorable.

Estonia will be also holding the presidency of the EU Council in the second half of 2017. Approximately 20 high-level meetings, visits, conferences and 200+ other presidency-related events will take place in Estonia during this period.
