Performed by the Youth Mixed Choir Vox Populi from Estonia, Meditations with Tormis, based on the choral cycles “Etudes in Keys” and “Nature Pictures” by Veljo Tormis, is a musical journey in the natural landscapes of Estonia, the variation of the four seasons and their corresponding patterns of harmonies. The harmony-language of composer Veljo Tormis is illustrated by photos of Estonian nature in different seasons. The concert-play has been produced to celebrate the 85th birthday of Veljo Tormis.

From the cycle Nature Pictures, the movement Autumn Landscapes will be performed as a mixed choir, Spring Sketches as a female choir, and Summer Motifs and Winter Patterns with female and male choirs as intended by the composer.
