Order CD

“Oxymoron” – contradictory terms in conjunction – seems to be a perfectly appropriate title for a CD presenting four pieces written between 1990 and 2005 by Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür for different vocal and instrumental line-ups: Tüür’s writing is characterized by juxtapositions of seemingly heterogeneous musical idioms always moulded with a rare sense of architecture and musical dramaturgy. “Oxymoron” is the fourth ECM-release dedicated exclusively to works by Erkki-Sven Tüür.
