Northern Lights

Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo

I’m not quite sure why Rhode Island’s classical music scene has skewed so heavily towards the Baltic nations lately, but the craze continues with the latest from Providence Singers and Aurea Ensemble. The two groups have paired up for a program of work from Scandinavia and the Baltic nations that includes a world premiere from Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo, as well as an ethereal piece by Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds for chorus, chimes, and water-tuned glasses. Edvard Grieg (Norway), Jean Sibelius (Finland), and Arvo Pärt (Estonia) are also represented, alongside composers Leevi Madetoja and Wilhelm Peterson-Berger.
