Will be released on Sep 25th, 2013 during the festival Verdissimo!

The album includes a bonus CD specially edited and mastered for car audio systems.

The current compilation is a musical homage to three important events taking place in 2013. The whole world celebrates the 200th anniversary of Giuseppe Verdi and Richard Wagner, and the Estonians pay tribute to the 100th anniversary of Estonia Theatre and Concert House. On May 8th, 2013 a magnificent concert of Verdi’s and Wagner’s opera choruses and overtures took place in the Estonia Concert Hall. The recording of the concert makes up the current records. The current album is not the usual double-CD as both discs contain exactly the same music. Why? Probably all of us have noticed that while listening to the music in a car, our hand automatically reaches out to adjust the volume. At times, the music is too loud, at times, barely audible through the surrounding noise, at times, the bass frequencies are distorted, because mostly, the recording of classical music is meant to be enjoyed on a high quality player in relative silence. Estonian Record Productions has worked out a special method of sound editing in order to guarantee optimal listening effect of the current recording also in spaces with high background noise level. We have also taken into consideration that not all car sound systems are of top-quality, so the additional disc can equally well be played on standard equipment. To our knowledge, this is the first car-CD produced in Estonia and one of the very few in the world.

Performed by the Estonian National Opera Chorus and Orchestra, conducted by Risto Joost Pavlo Balakin (basso, #6), Valentīna Tāluma (soprano, #6) Chorus Masters Marge Mehilane, Hirvo Surva Recorded live on May 8th, 2013 in Estonia Concert Hall
