"For me Lepo Sumera embodied an ideal of a composer – musically highly gifted and highly professional, he had very diverse cultural interests combined with the qualities of a shrewd psychologist to understand people around him. His range of emotions was genuinely Shakespearean – from very tender to subtly mocking to utterly uncompromising."
Eino Tamberg (Sirp, 9 June 2000)

In addition to Sumera’s sonnetts at the concert will be performed an Erkki-Sven Tüür´s miniature Searching for Roots as a tribute to Sibelius and a Finnish composers Uuno Klami’s very effective Kalevala Suite, which has also been named as “A Finnish Rite of Spring”.
