Conductor HANNU LINTU
Soprano Chen Reiss is a highly acclaimed and unique artist, captivating the audience with her clear and silvery timbre, velvety sound, and natural musicality. She has been called the ‘perfect Strauss voice’. In Estonia, Reiss will perform the poetic farewell work by Richard Strauss, Four Last Songs, which remained the swan song of the aged composer.
The conductor is one of the brightest representatives of Finland’s numerous and highly recognised conductors, maestro Hannu Lintu.
Concert is produced by Eesti Kontsert in cooperation with ERSO.
