The Portland State Chamber Choir, with conductor Ethan Sperry, is set to release its second recording exclusively devoted to composer and three-time Latvian Grand Music Award-winner Ēriks Ešenvalds, whose “rich, sonorous choral writing is in almost permanent ecstasy” (Guardian). Translations will be released on Naxos on March 12, and features seven works by the composer, including a world-premiere recording of the title track. The album is a follow-up to PSU Chamber Choir’s 2017 release The Doors of Heaven, which topped Billboard’s Traditional Classical chart and was called “superb” by Gramophone.
