Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir (EPCC) is one of the Estonia’s best-known professional music groups in Estonia. The choir was founded in 1981 by Tõnu Kaljuste, the choir´s artistic director for 20 years. In 2001–2007 English musician Paul Hillier took over; between 2008–2013 the chief conductor was Daniel Reuss and since September 2014 the choir is working under Kaspars Putniņš. The choir’s repertoire ranges from Gregorian Chant to the 21st century music, with the main focus on Estonian music (Veljo Tormis, Arvo Pärt etc). The choir gives 60–70 concerts per season and has been a welcomed guest at many famous venues all over the world, including Royal Albert Hall, Sydney Opera House, Wiener Konzerthaus, Carnegie Hall, Walt Disney Concert Hall etc. EPCC recordings (labels ECM, Virgin Classics, Carus, Harmonia Mundi) have won several prizes including two Grammy Awards for Arvo Pärt’s Da Pacem with the conductor Paul Hillier (2007) and Arvo Pärt’s Adam’s Lament with the conductor Tõnu Kaljuste (2014).
