About

The album Strata presents large-scale music for orchestral forces from highly regarded Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür – his Sixth Symphony and Concerto for violin and clarinet. It is Tüür’s fifth ECM New Series album with compositions that are, in his words, “abstract dramas in sound, with individual characters and an extremely dynamic chain of events; unfolding in a space that is constantly shifting, expanding and contracting.

Introduced on ECM with the 1996 release Crystallisatio, Erkki-Sven Tüür has come to be one of the most celebrated of Estonian composers, after Arvo Pärt probably the most widely-played internationally. Strata, an album of great power, recorded in Tallinn at the Estonia Concert Hall, is certain to widen Tüür’s following. The album is also an ECM debut for charismatic Estonian conductor Anu Tali and the Nordic Symphony Orchestra (which she co-founded). Originally projected as a Finnish-Estonian undertaking, the orchestra has grown to include outstanding players from 15 countries.

Soloists on Noēsis are German clarinettist (and composer) Jörg Widmann and his violinist sister Carolin, two of the most distinguished instrumentalists of their generation.

Tüür charges his scores with a primal energy that reaches past its textural complexity to speak directly to the listener.” - Martin Anderson, International Record Review
