At the opening concert of the season, the new leader of the orchestra Triin Ruubel, who shares this job of great responsibility with Arvo Leibur from April 2015, will make her first appearance as a soloist with ENSO. Triin Ruubel, who is currently taking her Master’s degree at the Leopold Mozart Institute in Augsburg, has gained wider recognition at several international violin competitions. She has won the Grand Prix at the Remember Enescu competition in Sinaia, Romania, and First Prize and Special Prizes at the Kloster Schöntal competition in Germany. Ruubel has performed as a soloist in front of many orchestras in Estonia and abroad, she has collaborated with such orchestras as Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock and Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, and performed at renowned festivals in Germany.
Triin Ruubel: “The Violin Concerto by Jean Sibelius has been one of my favourite works since childhood. It has this Nordic coolness, under which seethes the elusive pristine power, tragedy, nostalgia, but also dance-like elegance. I deliberately wanted to play this piece with ENSO because the sound of ENSO has the darkness and grandeur necessary for performing the music of Sibelius.”
Alexander Scriabin’s most famous symphonic piece The Poem of Ecstasy is a piece with a sound image full of symbols and written by a composer of whom it was said saw music and heard colours.
The roots of Schwanda the Bagpiper, the opera by Czech composer Jaromír Weinberger, can be found in Czech folklore. This enormously popular work in its own time was performed even at the Metropolitan Opera in the first half of the 20th century. The most known excerpt from the opera performed in concert programmes today is the symphonic Polka and Fugue.
