Jēkabs Jančevskis is a young Latvian composer and an exponent of that thrilling, accessible brand of choral writing which flourishes in the Baltic States as nowhere else, and which has become something of an established Hyperion enthusiasm.
Composer Jēkabs Jančevskis and conductor Jurģis Cābulis were classmates at the Riga Cathedral Choir School, and sang together in the mixed choir until 2012. The school is held in high regard, and gives its students a strong foundation in music as well as a broad, high-quality general education. The best of the best study here.
"Arrestingly beautiful and dramatic contemporary choral works that might make me a convert." MusicWeb May 2020
"An unfeasibly young and unusually original Latvian choral composer is wonderfully served by his even younger local cathedral school choir." MusicWeb
