"The pianist Kalle Randalu can remember very clearly his first impressions of the Mozart music, as if it had been yesterday when his classmate, Jüri Alperten, was playing him a record with Mozart´s Serenade for strings in G major, better known as Eine kleine Nachtmusik (A Little Night Music). “ I was standing stiff, staring at the grammophone with my mouth open whereas my friend was looking at me,” Randalu gives a smile when he remembers the old times and the beginning of his greatest passion, love for the music by Mozart.”(Muusika 10/2006). Beside the fact that they were classmates at Tallinn Music High School, Kalle Randalu and Jüri Alperten were also studying together at the Estonian Academy of Music (these days: the Tallinn Conservatoire), attending Professor Bruno Lukk´s piano classes. They had surprised their audience already before by playing the two pianos and performing the music by Mozart, the Concerto for Two Pianos, K 365, with the Pärnu City Orchestra in 2000, and the two parts of it with the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra in 2002.
The current concert program also involves overture to the comic opera The Impresario and concert aria Ch’io mi scordi di te… Non temer, amato bene by Mozart, composed in 1786, performed by Teele Jõks, and tone poem Thus Spoke Zarathustra, which is one of the best of the early works by Richard Strauss.
