This new release from the Latvian Radio Choir conducted by Sigvards Kłava features choral works by three Russian and Latvian composers: Yuri Falik, Artūrs Maskats and Georgy Sviridov. The disc’s themes range from love to nature to the sacred. Five of the works include solo parts sung by two notable Latvian singers, Aleksandrs Antoņenko and Eva Ezeriete. The title work of the recording, Sviridov’s Sacred Love, is a unique example of aesthetically beautiful vocal writing. Sigvards Kļava, since 1992 Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the Latvian Radio Choir, is one of that country’s most prolific choral conductors. The Latvian Radio Choir is regarded as one of the top professional European chamber choirs. The Choir’s prior Rachmaninov’s All-Night Vigil (ODE 1206-5) was chosen as the Record of the Month, Editor’s Choice and received a nomination in the 2013 Gramophone Awards.
