Nature Pictures (2010) In this CD, the PWC celebrates a close relationship with prominent Estonian composer, Veljo Tormis. Influenced by his deep conviction that ancient song traditions reflect a close connection to nature, the prolific Tormis gives us the four seasons in 36 miniatures of intense choral imagery in his evocative song cycles, Looduspildid (Nature Pictures). We are proud to present the first American recording of this cycle! This eclectic recording continues the theme with Karl Korte's 'Spring', Chen Yi's 'Looking at the Sea' and Samuel Barber's 'To be Sung on the Water.' Also included are Edward Elgar's 'The Snow' and Kenneth Leslie's lovely 'Cape Breton Lullaby,' a PWC favorite.
