I wrote then that I was impressed by Fine 5’s use of contemporary and folk dance styles, complementing the earthy music more successfully than many ballet versions I had seen.

Verdi’s “Requiem” will never feature in my 10 desert island discs, but the contribution of the choreography of Tiina Ollesk and Rene Nõmmik and the Fine 5 dancers, uncredited in the programme, (Tiina Ollesk, Külli Roosna, Laura Kvelstein, Eneli Raud, Rain Saukas, Dmitri Kruus, Argo Liik, Silver Soorsk, Endro Roosimäe) ensured that this was a rewarding experience.
