YOUNG TALENT: PIANIST JAAN KAPP

In programme:
Rakmaninov – Piano Concerto No. 2 in c minor
R. Strauss – “The Alpine Symphony”

Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
Conductor ERI KLAS

16-year-old Estonian pianist Jaan Kapp played Rakhmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in the final of the Classical Eurovision in Luzern in 2004. For some years now he has participated successfully in national and international competitions. He has been named a child prodigy but he has always commented it modestly with “one has to work hard”. However, the key to his success is not only his perfect technique but something extraordinary that one cannot put into words, something that people go to concerts for…

The Estonian conductor Eri Klasi has always wanted to perform Richard Strauss’ “The Alpine Symphony” and now his dream has come true. “It is a musical painting for an enormous symphony orchestra. It could also be seen as a person’s life from birth to death. The composer has described a day in the Alpines that he could see from the room he was working in and where he often went for walks. In the piece one can hear the sounds of spring and waterfall, the endless space in the mountains, fog and thunder, sunset and night falling.”

Eri Klas has conducted many major symphony orchestras in Europe and North-America. He is the chief conductor of the Netherlands Radio Symphony Orchestra, the artistic director of the Tampere Symphony Orchestra and the Tallinn Philharmonic Society and the principal guest conductor of the Finnish National Opera.
