Erkki-Sven Tüür on Compact Disc

Last Update: March 16, 2004


These are all the known CDs which contain music by Erkki-Sven Tüür. The listing is in alpha-numeric order by record label. Links will take you to individual CD details. Many of these discs contain only 1 or 2 works by Tüür, and may not necessarily be filed under his name at your local store. Some locations where stores might file these discs are under categories such as Miscellaneous 20th Century Composers, Baltic Composers, Estonian Composers and Finnish Composers (due to the number of Finlandia label recordings). Due to the number of other composers that appear on these discs, it is suggested that one also look under other Baltic/Estonian composer names such as Heino Eller, Arvo Pärt, Lepo Sumera, Veljo Tormis, Eduard Tubin and Peteris Vasks. Some stores may have separate bins for performers/conductors, so it is always worth taking a look under such names as Paavo Järvi, Tõnu Kaljuste, Juha Kangas, etc. Alternatively, most of these discs are available at the major on-line CD stores as well. The independent labels such as Eesti Raadio, Elwood Muusik, Eres Edition, Erdenklang and the Peeter Malkov CD are only available from Estonia and Germany to my knowledge. Note that the French only editions of Estonie and L'expérience estonienne are linked to an online CD store in France from which they may successfully be ordered if you have some basic French language skills (note: these last discs are probably out of print as of this writing in late 2002).

Recent and or planned recordings awaiting release and/or recently added or discovered releases
Finlandia Records: After their concert of January 24, 2004, the Tapiola Chamber Choir and the Ostrobothnian Chamber Orchestra under conductor Hannu Norjanen recorded Erkki-Sven Tüür's Inquiétude du Fini (text by the prominent Estonian novelist/poet Tõnu Õnnepalu) for future release. This will be the world premiere recording of this work for chorus and chamber orchestra which was written for the 1992 Espoo International Choral Festival and was premiered there on December 1, 1992 by the Tapiola Chamber Choir and the Tapiola Sinfonietta conducted by Eric-Olof Söderström.
Finlandia Records: After the international success of the premiere release Swan Flight by the Estonian-Finnish Symphony Orchestra and their conductor Anu Tali, it is reported that their second release for Finlandia Records will contain works by Erkki-Sven Tüür. Details are awaiting confirmation.
