01/01 'Hillborg's Mouyayoum is just a fantastic piece of music'
Latvian conductor Kaspars Putniņš on Carte blanche for Sigvards Kļava
On 20 and 22 January, Cappella Amsterdam will perform a programme put together by Sigvards Kļava chief conductor at the renown Latvian Radio Choir, where Putniņš serves as a conductor, as well.
Kļava selected, amongst others, works by Knut Nystedt, Anders Hillborg, Arvo Pärt en Philip Glass.
During a recent visit to Amsterdam, Putniņš found some time in between rehearsals for some comments on the programme.
“Hillborg has written very little for choir (…). The musical world should encourage him to write more, because ‘Mouyayoum’ is just an incredible piece of music.”
