Tõnu Kõrvits

born: 1969
country: Estonia

Kõrvits graduated in 1994 from the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre (studying with Raimo Kangro) and, following postgraduate studies with Jaan Rääts, he returned to the academy in 2001 to teach composition and orchestration. Against the background of established Estonian composers Arvo Pärt and Veljo Tormis, Kõrvits’ sound world stands out as highly poetic, and full of visionary fantasies. His work embraces all the traditional genres from orchestral music, instrumental ensembles and works for solo instruments to choral music, solo songs and operas. In addition, he is highly regarded as an accomplished arranger of popular music and has composed soundtracks for several animation films.

Kreegi vihik 'Kreek's Notebook' (Kõrvits)
Lenda üles kurbtusest  
Ma kiitlen ükspäinis neist verisist haavust  
Ma vaatan üles mäele  
Minu hing, oh ole rõõmus  
Nüüd ole, Jeesus, kiidetud  
Nüüd on see päev ju lõppenud –  
Oh võta, armas Jeesus, vastu mult –  
Su hooleks ennast annan ma  
The night is darkening round me (Kõrvits)
