The world-lead­ing Es­to­nian Phil­har­monic Cham­ber Choir gave The Last Con­cert of Old Europe in Gal­way the night be­fore the Euro­pean Union em­braced the coun­tries of East­ern Europe in 2004. They’re back in Ire­land this week­end for an even big­ger project, two per­for­mances of Arvo Pärt’s qui­etly monumental, pen­i­ten­tial Kanon Poka­ja­nen (in Ballintub­ber Abbey and Dublin’s Pro-Cathe­dral) and two pre­sen­ta­tions of shorter works by Pärt (above) with a se­lec­tion of works by other Es­to­nian com­posers (in Gal­way and Drogheda).
