YL Male Voice Choir celebrating 125th anniversary (29.03.2008)

The Finnish YL Male Voice Choir celebrates its 125th anniversary in 2008. Founded at the University of Helsinki in 1883, it remains the oldest Finnish-language choir in Finland. The anniversary festivities were held between March 29 and April 5, 2008 with three acclaimed concerts in Helsinki.

An extensive history of concerts and international tours, many commissions of Sibelius's and Rautavaara's best-known choral works and numerous critically acclaimed recordings have established the Choir as one of the world's most prominent male voice choirs.

Ondine and the YL Male Voice Choir have maintained a partnership for several years. March/April 2008 saw the release of Sibelius's Kullervo, also featuring soprano Soile Isokoski and baritone Tommi Hakala as soloists, accompanied by the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra under Leif Segerstam (ODE 1122-5)
