Tormis's music was completely unknown to me until I saw the excellent reviews given by the Sunday Times of this particular CD. I am very familiar with the music of his fellow Estonian, Arvo Part, who, of course, has achieved international renown, but the music of Tormis on this CD is very different. It is performed quite admirably and is very distinctive in its flavour. I have certainly never heard anything like it before. For adventurous listeners of modern, but accessible, classical music this is a must acquisition.
