Other Points of Interest and Links
There was an article that appeared in the Eesti Ekspress (Estonian
Express) weekly newspaper during the time of filming which can be seen here. (available in the Estonian language only)
An article that appeared in a further edition of Eesti Ekspress
contained an interesting anecdote about the filming of the concert
performance of Te Deum which is translated as follows: “Last summer,
director Aarno Cronvall had his filming plan for Arvo Pärt’s Te Deum
ready well before the rehearsals by Kaljuste’s choir in the Niguliste
Church had even begun. The camera positioning, the framing placements,
the lengths of takes – everything. Director Cronvall sat through
several rehearsals and totally revised his plan the night before the
first filming was to take place. “Let us shoot more of Kaljuste”, said
the director to the chief cameraman. Because Kaljuste’s lively facial
expressions and sensitive movements conveyed Pärt’s music better than
the planned shots of the audience, the choir and the orchestra. If
Kaljuste leaves, from where would there be found another conductor whom
directors would want to endlessly film? The musical community says that
in Estonia there isn’t any other such person.”
