Estonian Music Week to be held in Tallinn and Tartu | Music

“Estonian sound creativity and the art of interpretation have a lot of fans even abroad, so we offer the opportunity to watch and listen to concerts online. Such broadcasts cannot be an alternative to a live music concert on site, but it is still a good opportunity for those who can’t come to the festival,” said Kaiza Lõhmus, executive producer of the festival.

The musicians will perform works by four Estonian composers: Lepo Sumer, Tõnu Kõrvits, Kuldar Sink and Eduard Tubin. 38 Estonian performers will perform at five festival concerts.

Each musician is given the opportunity to find among the works of Estonian composers exactly the work that inspires him the most. This is how classical guitarist Kirill Ogorodnikov, winner of international competitions and the Sound Art Fund award, will play based on the manuscripts of Kuldar Sink. He will present to the audience a composition that will henceforth complement the guitarist’s repertoire: together with the soprano Katrin Targo, they will perform the song “On the Road, Cranes!” to the words of Friedrich Kulbars.

The musician is convinced that it is very exciting to take on little-known and rarely performed works, in such circumstances it is easier to “dig into” your own interpretation solution and come up with something original: “It’s wildly interesting! And always a gamble.”

Ogorodnikov will have to play from the composer’s personal manuscripts. In preparation for the concert, he had to collect and study all existing manuscripts and handwritten copies of Sink’s song. “I will compare all this, and soon we will see what happens,” the musician promised. A concert dedicated to the work of Kuldar Sink with the participation of Kirill Ogorodnikov will take place on November 26 in the great hall of the Academy of Music and Theatre, which will become the main venue of the Estonian Music Week in Tallinn this year.

In Tartu, fans of Estonian music are welcome in the Tubin Hall at the Heino Eller School of Music, where they can hear excerpts from the festival program at the opening of the festival. The organizers of the festival are the Estonian Performers’ Union and the Academy of Music and Theatre.
