"...balance between the voices was sublime, as was the sense of phrasing and, crucially, space; timings were perfectly judged to let the sound fill and fade naturally in the acoustic."

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir is one of the best-known Estonian music groups in the world. Comprised of 26 singers (7 sopranos, 6 altos, 6 tenors, 7 basses), the repertoire of the choir extends from Gregorian chant and baroque to the music of the 21th century, with special focus on the work of Estonian composers (Arvo Pärt, Veljo Tormis, Erkki-Sven Tüür, Galina Grigoryeva, Toivo Tulev, Tõnu Kõrvits, Helena Tulve) and introducing it to the world.
Putniņš started as an artistic director and chief conductor of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir in September 2014. Whilst Kaspars Putniņš work encompasses a wide range of choral repertoire from Renaissance polyphony to works of the Romantic period, his foremost goal has always been that of promoting new outstanding choral music. This new repertoire challenges and develops the abilities of his performers and takes their vocal sound to entirely uncharted territories.
