Review By Allen Gimbel,American Record Guide,March 2012

Estonian Erkki-Sven Tüür’s Awakening…for chorus and a particularly rich sounding chamber orchestra, is a strikingly beautiful setting of Latin sacred texts and contemporary Estonian poetry all related by the topic of rebirth and resurrection. This is unlike anything I’ve heard from this composer, and it’s one of the most stunning choral works I’ve had the pleasure of hearing for a long time. It’s hypnotic, elevating, and deeply expressive, free of tough dissonance, most of it floating ethereally in the highest regions. If you are devoted to superb choral music miraculously performed (and recorded), don’t miss this.


Review By Die Zeit,December 2011

Aufregende Musik für Chor und Orchester aus Estland von einem der interessantesten Komponisten der Gegenwart: Erkki-Sven Tüür (Jg. 1959) schrieb Ärkamine (zu Deutsch: Erwachen) 2011 im Auftrag der (noch) Kulturhauptstadt Tallinn zum 20. Jubiläum der Befreiung Estlands von den sowjetischen Besatzern. Die Balten hatten die Russen damals aus dem Land gesungen, was als Singende Revolution in die Geschichte einging. Unter anderem davon handelt das politisch und spirituell motivierte Werk, das eine Ahnung davon vermittelt, welche Kräfte die menschliche Stimme auch heute noch zu entfesseln vermag. © 2011 Die Zeit
