LISTEN

Maasta

Of the Earth presents the diversity of Finnish choral music. The composition styles have been influenced by everything from folk music and fusion jazz to the harmony-based classical music of the 21st century, where one can even immerse oneself with individual sounds of words. Seven out of the nine pieces on the album are primary recordings. The Finnish journal Helsingin Sanomat chose Of the Earth as one of the albums of the year in 2005, and The Finnish Choral Directors’ Association chose it as the Choral Recording of the Year.

Hereillä

What is the sound of the moment between dreaming and awakening? The monuments of Einojuhani Rautavaara and Erik Bergman create a field of wild and mystical sounds while the compositions of Akira Nishimura and Eric Whitacre present the virtuosity of the human voice. A soft touch of romance is added by the folk song arrangements of Leevi Madetoja. All this is brought to a whole by the serene depictions of the Finnish midsummer by Anders Hillborg – in his images of the quiet sounds of the archipelago sways a folksy Finnish melody

Tähti

Star captures the spirit of Christmas with a repertoire full of traditional Finnish Christmas carols, daring arrangements of familiar Christmas tunes and also yuletide music from abroad. Star offers us both moods of energy-filled celebration and peaceful sound-scenery: everything from the tunes of our time to traditional songs, be they either from home or countries far away.

Taivaaseen

To Heaven plays the mysticism of afterlife with the tunes of early 20th century Romance. The songs of this highly eclectic repertoire are mostly large pieces with an extremely wide range of expression. In an almost effortless manner, Emo Ensemble manages to convey the different nuances from intimate solos to determined unisons; from stillness to pulsation; and from the soft fields of sound to pungent dissonances.

“Philip Glass Ensemble, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra and EMO Ensemble performed the soundtrack with such power and devotion that it can hardly be beat by any hi-fi equipment at home or in a movie theater.” (translated from an article by Samuli Tiikkaja in Helsingin Sanomat, 22 August 2013)

”EMO Ensemble is a lively, interesting and open-mindedly exploring bright spark in the choral world.” – Marko Ylönen, Professor of chamber music, University of the Arts

They Are a-Changin

Autumn Season 2017

EMO Ensemble will start its spring season 2018 with a gaze on the ’Horizon’ in a concert conducted by Eleriin Müüripeal. Horisontti (Horizon) exhibits a vast variety of most beautiful choral music written on the topic sea. Come and experience a voyage with EMO Ensemble in the magnificent acoustics of Meilahti church. Brahms, Elgar, Fougstedt, Holst, Moeran, Mäntyjärvi, Nyström, Schumann ja Sibelius.

Ketjureaktio! (Chain Reaction!) presents a sequence of composer that form a chain of teachers and students. The sequence starts from Max Reger, who taught finnish composer Aarre Merikanto in Leipzig. A. Merikanto became a professor in Sibelius Academy, and was followed in this position by his own student Joonas Kokkonen. Kokkonen was the first teacher of Tapani Länsiö and Länsiö was the teacher of Ilkka Aunu during the start of Aunu’s studies in composition. EMO Ensemble & Viipurin Lauluveikot are conducted in the concert by Ilkka Aunu.

Figure humaine concert takes on the difficult topics of human behavior during personal crisis: how do people face a great sorrow, how does a person survive from the loss of a child, what is a home when your home land is far away? EMO Ensemble, Sibelius Academy Vocal Ensemble and Naiskuoro Primavera take on these grand questions in a concert conducted by Lily Solomonov.

EMO Ensemble takes part in two concerts of VocalEspoo Festival. EMO Ensemble is giving premier to two pieces in the Opening Concert of VocalEspoo Festical. Gioachino Rossini’s Stabat Mater in Tapiola church will be one of the high points of VocalEspoo Festival in 2018. EMO will take part in the performance along with Tapiola Sinfonietta, VocalEspoo Festical Choir & soloists, conducted by Klaus Mäkelä.
