Founded in 1970 The Pirkanpojat Boys' Choir is now one of the leading boy's choirs in Scandinavia. Emphasizing the education and training of the young male voices at the ages of 6 - 9 the boys enter the Perita choir from which they move after auditioning to Concentus and the A-Choir. They begin as sopranos or altos and later they join the male voices. Teaching score reading and voice training run parallel with choir work. Their present choirmaster Master of Music Jussi Kauranen began as a soprano singer in the choir in 1979 and became their Artistic Director in 1995. This recording features many works commissioned by the choir of contemporary Finnish composers and was recorded at their 35th anniversary concert at the Tampere Hall. Finnish lyric poetry is second to none and is expertly demonstrated both in the compositions and the boys singing on this fine recording.
