Laula! is the third album by Mike Fentross and Maarten Ornstein, they are once again collaborating with an extraordinary singer - the Estonian mezzo-soprano Kadri Tegelmann. She is not only a superb interpreter of the Baroque music, but she also introduced Maarten and Mike to the deep and rich tradition of Baltic vocal music with its many folksongs, hymns and chants. Choosing the repertoire for this new album, they learned that many Estonian folksongs are about events from the cycle of life, such as birth, marriage, lullabies, leaving and returning home, and death. These universal themes have been used in art for centuries all over the world, and they are the basis for the music on this CD too. For each of the Estonian folksongs featured here they have found an equivalent from the Baroque era, and where possible paired the songs. This third album Laula! illustrates the broadening artistic strides they have made from playing Baroque duos to venturing into the great tradition of Arabic music and now releasing a conceptual album about the cycle of life. Life in all its joy, misery, anxiety, glory and mystery - just like music itself.
