Brahms’ Symphony No. 3 will be performed during the second half of the concert. Olari Elts: “This is Brahms’ most autobiographical, most melancholic symphony, which is a perfect expression of his personal motto during that period of life: “Frei aber froh” (“free, but happy”).”

Elts has been performing actively on different stages around the world, with the international press calling him enchantingly skilful, modest in body language, but an expressive conductor (Birmingham Post, 30/01/2011) whose “conducting style exudes intelligence and deep musicality” (Helsingin Sanomat, 23/01/2012).
