Join us after the 6pm concert and hear Jaan-Eik Tulve, Artistic Director and Conductor of Vox Clamantis share his thoughts on this artistic combination of Gerhard Richter’s artwork and Arvo Pärt’s music, described by The Guardian as “a match made in heaven”. 

The artistic director and conductor of Vox Clamantis Jaan-Eik Tulve graduated from Tallinn Conservatory in 1991 and specialized in Gregorian chant at Le Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris. In 1992 Tulve became the conductor of the Cheour Gregorien de Paris and has appeared with the choir in many European countries. In 1996 he took up a position teaching Gregorian chant at the Estonian Academy of Music and at the same time formed the Vox Clamantis in Tallinn. Tulve has been awarded the Order of the White Star of the Republic of Estonia, the Order of Léopold of the Kingdom of Belgium and the Order of Arts and Letters of the French Republic.
