Tolm ja lumi

— May 2024

Opus : 44 / Type d'œuvre : Pour voix seule(s)

A strange, very slow lullaby, with time seemingly suspended by the gaze cast from inside, where there is still a little warmth and light, towards the outside, invaded by snow and cold, a world that is not waiting for us.

Two other texts by the same author will form a triptych with this play.

Recording, audio extract: previously unreleased recording, made by the ensemble Territoires du souffle in 2014. Soprano Julia Baumier.

Difficulty rating: medium

Jaan Kaplinski


Mixed-voice chamber choir, a cappella (the Territoires du souffle version is with viola, accordion and bells)

Duration: 5minutes approx.

This work was for a time integrated into Le Panoptique de Jeremy Bentham, punctuating the 2nd part before the long journey of the final text.
I plan to form a triptych with two other poems by the same author.
