Guido Gualandi (© Mait Jüriado).

ENSO’s chamber concert is called We!, a title borrowed from Lepo Sumera, describing perfectly the strong feeling of fellowship between orchestra members when performing with various groups. The audience has said that ENSO’s chamber concerts are a great way to see musicians who otherwise play an important role at the back of the stage.

In earlier seasons, wind and string players have performed at the chamber concerts, but this time, percussion players will also get their chance to shine. Madis Metsamart, the principal of ENSO’s percussion group, shares the joy of his colleagues in the fact that Estonian composers have so eagerly explored the diverse and interesting world of percussion.

In addition to the small ensembles who will perform in the first half of the concert, ENSO’s chamber orchestra will be playing Lepo Sumera’s Musica profana and Tõnu Kõrvits’s La Folia. The soloist will be Guido Gualandi, principal oboe of the ENSO. The orchestra will perform Overture No. 2 by Veljo Tormis in full composition. Conductors, however, will have a week off.
