Panufnik's Dance of Life - Tallinn Mass released on Warner Classics
Roxanna Panufnik’s Tallinn Mass, released on the Warner Classics label on 3rd February 2014, has garnered positive responses from the critics. Originally commissioned to celebrate Tallinn’s tenure as European Capital of Culture in 2011, this recording features the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, Patricia Rozario and narrator Jaak Johanson and is performed in Latin and English, rather than in the Estonian in which it was written.
Brian Morton of Choir & Organ magazine called the piece ‘a genuine masterwork’ signalling ‘a deeper maturity of style’, with the The Arts Desk’s Graham Rickson stating that the recording was ‘ecstatic…affirmative…All brilliantly performed, and sensationally recorded.’
Dance of Life – Tallinn Mass is available to buy and download.
