CANTICUM CANTICORUM is a special project, inspired by texts of “Song of Songs” and effectuated in collaboration with Latvian Radio Choir (conductor Kaspars Putnins) and ensemble SARBAND (leader Vladimir Ivanoff). The project, which was carried out for two years, included a sound laboratory, where six composers, that represent the northern Europe and the Middle East, tried to find a new, unique sound. Here is a little insight into the making of the project.
Compositions by Lasse Thoresen (Norway), Toivo Tulev (Estonia), Martins Vilums (Latvia), Santa Ratniece (Latvia), Bushra El-Turk (Lebanon/UK) and Vladimir Ivanoff (Bulgaria, Germany).
Ensemble SARBAND: Vladimir Ivanoff (Bulgaria/Germany), Mustafa Doğan Dikmen (Turkey), Salah Eddin Maraqa (Jordan/Germany), Efstratios Psaradellis (Greece)
