“Estonian atmospheres" is a composition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of Estonia. The central theme of the work is the cycle of seasons in Estonia. For the first time all national youth choirs and orchestras – the Estonian United Boys’ Choir KALEV, Estonian National Children’s Choir Ilmalilled, Estonian National Girls’ Choir, Estonian Youth Mixed Choir and Estonian Youth Wind Orchestra – are staging together.
The music brings you to a meditative journey through the Estonian nature in all four seasons, which begins and ends in winter, when the premiere is held. Uusberg has written to beautiful texts from Estonian poets like Ernst Enno, Juhan Liiv, Viivi Luik and Hendrik Visnapuu new cycles for children’s, female, male and mixed choirs, which describe the essence of Estonian seasons. The whole piece will be connected through seasonal runo songs arranged to wind orchestra.
The work will be accompanied by scenic visuals of Estonian nature created by cinematographer Madis Reimund with lightning design by Priidu Adlas and minimalistic set designed by Getter Vahar. The performance will be bind together by interludes by Mait Visnapuu.
