The Estonian Music Days, which has been the premier event showcasing the work of Estonian composers since 1979, this year focuses on abundance in its many shades, contrasts and meanings. As always, the Estonian Music Days concert offers audiences exciting new works and the joy of discovery.
The symphony concert of Estonian Music Days comes with surprises, anything but obvious soloists and most definitely catchy premieres. Canadian-born Estonian composer Riho Esko Maimets uses accordion as solo instrument, played by young virtuoso Henri Zibo, who was a finalist, jury’s favourite and winner of the ENSO Special Prize in the television competition “Klassikatähed” (Classical Stars), and who regardless of his fresh status as a television star and busy performance schedule will be graduating from Tallinn Music High School this year. Thanks to his candid virtuoso playing style and outstanding musicality, Henri Zibo managed to convert numerous television viewers to the accordion last season: “The accordion is not just for village parties, but a versatile instrument allowing us to perform the music of the most different characters.”
Organist Aare-Paul Lattik, mostly known for his interpretation of French music, will perform in the piece by Kristo Matson. Tõnu Kõrvits composed a piece for distinguished clarinet player Meelis Vind, who also recently wrote his first piece for the symphony orchestra. Apart from a new composition by Tatjana Kozlova-Johannes, we will hear Jakob Juhkam’s electronic remix of symphonic works. The concert will be conducted by Taavi Kull, for whom this concert will be a debut in front of Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. There will be announced awards for the best pieces of last year’s festival.
