Maestros Kalle Randalu and Neeme Järvi will continue performing and recording the Beethoven piano concertos commenced last season. “Who has said that the classics should be played strictly and only following the instructions? What kinds of liberties can we take in music and where are the boundaries? Only a true master knows. This is what we heard. Bravo!” (Leelo Kõlar after the performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 by Kalle Randalu, ENSO and Neeme Järvi as part of the concert London on 13 March 2015 – Sirp, 20.03.2015).
For its depth and mature style the Piano Concerto No. 3 has been compared to the famous Eroica Symphony, composed a few years later. Piano Concerto No. 5, popularly known as the Emperor Concerto, referring to young Beethoven’s fascination with Napoléon, is the most monumental of his piano concertos with the most imaginative soloist part.
This concert opens with Serenade by Hungarian composer Leó Weiner, which has brought him several awards.
The pre-concert chamber performance at 6 pm will feature Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 18 No. 1 in F major, that will be performed by Triin Ruubel (1st violin), Kaido Välja (2nd violin), Rain Vilu (viola) and Pärt Tarvas (cello).
