The season 2004/05 is the fourth season to the Russian conductor Nikolay Alexeev as the chief conductor of ERSO. The concert introduces the last symphonic works by Brahms and Shostakovich – compositions that combine within themselves life and creative experiences of the composers.
Young violinist Viviane Hagner has been compared to the world-famous Anne-Sophie Mutter – calm and statuesque, with a broad, powerful tone. “Viviane Hagner has a resourceful technique, and her tone is special: vibrant, but slightly dark in color, almost plaintive.” The New York Times
Jan-Erik Gustafsson is the winner of several international competitions. He has performed in Estonia many times. With ERSO he has performed the Cello Concerto by Schumann.
