The ‘Piano Concerto’ series will be opened by the winner of several international competitions, an Estonian pianist Maksim Shtshura, who has been residing in London for years and will be playing one of Gershwin’s best-known works – ‘Rhapsody in Blue’, which begins with an unforgettable clarinet solo.
By his side, the conductor Jonathan Bloxham from the United Kingdom, will be taking the stage in front of ERSO for the first time. Bloxham, who started his career as a cellist, has already conducted prestigious European and Asian orchestras, and his first CD has just been released. In August, the prestigious Glyndebourne festival ended with Bloxham conducting Luisa Miller by Verdi. One week before the Tallinn concert, he will conduct the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra residing in London at the Newbury Festival, and in October, he will perform Don Pasquale by Donizetti with the Glyndebourne Touring Opera.
