St Nicholas Choir Litija Performs “De Profundis” by Yoav Talmi
Click above to enjoy a new video of Yoav Talmi’s “De Profundis” for choir and orchestra. Although the world premiere in 2011 was given by the Québec Symphony Orchestra and choir, the current recording was made by the Slovenian Radio and Television Orchestra with the Saint Nicholas Choir Litija, conducted by the composer.
The work was written in 2011, Talmi’s last season as music director of the Quebec Symphony (after a tenure of 13 seasons). This poignant and emotional composition was dedicated to the composer’s father, Abraham Talmi, a music teacher by profession and a painter in his soul. In 2013 “De Profundis” won the Prime Minister’s Prize for Composition in Jerusalem.
