At 6 pm the audience is welcome to join a little tour in music history which will take them to early 20th century Vienna. The programme will be guided by the music scholar and expert of German culture Kristel Pappel. As introduction, Gustav Mahler’s Piano Quartet in A Minor will be performed by Arvo Leibur (violin), Helena Altmanis (viola), Lauri Toom (cello) and Mati Mikalai (piano).
Vienna, the capital of Austria, is one of the most respectable centres of music: its Boys Choir, operating since the 15th century, great traditions in court music, the Vienna Philharmonic and Vienna State Opera, both established in the mid-19th century, the composers Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven, Schubert, the Strauss family, Mahler, Schönberg – just to name a few of the brightest stars of Viennese musical history.
The first half of the concert focuses on the third Viennese classic Ludwig van Beethoven, a composer with strong tendencies reflecting Romanticism and the music of the 19th century. The beloved Estonian pianist Kalle Randalu will perform Beethoven’s 4th piano concerto.
In the second half of the concert, maestro Neeme Järvi will take the audience on a tour to Gustav Mahler’s and Benjamin Britten’s symphonic world.
