Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir brings new piece Ääni joka katosi to Finnish and Estonian audience. Additionally the silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc by Carl Theodor Dreyer can be seen at the festival Les Boréales in France with new music written by Tõnu Kõrvits.

The new choir piece Ääni joka katosi (The Voice that Got Lost) by Tõnu Kõrvits is based on the Finnish poet Mirkka Rekola’s poem that he wrote in the memory of his father who lost his voice, fighting in Estonia in 1919. The piece has been written in commission of Finnish festival Lux musicae specially for Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and it will be premiered on 15 November at Siuntio Church, conducted by Daniel Reuss. In Estonia, the new piece can be heared on 16 November at 4 pm in Niguliste Museum – Concert Hall. Additionally works by Johannes Brahms, Felix Mendelssohn, Cyrillus Kreek, Galina Grigorjeva and Arnold Schönberg will be performed. The conductor is Daniel Reuss.

New music by Tõnu Kõrvits can also be heard in France where the festival Les Boréales for Northern culture is held from 9 to 29 November already for the 18th time. This time, besides other Scandinavian countries, Les Boréales points out Danish culture, Faroe Island and Greenland inter alia. Through four unconvential film-concerts and film analysis courses, special attention will be payed to the Danish film director and screenwriter Carl Theodor Dreyer (1889-1968). As Dreyer made in 50 years altogether 14 films that have perpetuated in film history, his oeuvre gives a sight to the development of the 20th Century film history.

Dreyer’s first film to belong to classics, the silent film The Passion of Joan of Arc that was based on the real court documents was completed in 1928. This film will be shown at the festival with music by Estonian composer Tõnu Kõrvits, premiered by the Ensemble of Basse-Normandie and conducted by Dominique Debart. The film is in the festival programme on 21 and 29 November in Caen, the region of Basse-Normandie in North-Western France.
