Benjamin Britten

– Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, Op. 10

Arvo Pärt

– Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten
– Tabula Rasa

Tõnu Kaljuste and Tallinn Chamber Orchestra will perform the two composers’ pieces for strings orchestra, dedicated to honour their colleagues’ creative work: Benjamin Britten was inspired by his composition teacher, viola player and conductor Frank Bridge, and Arvo Pärt commemorated his demised colleague Benjamin Britten’s art. Highly acclaimed British-born violin soloists Hugo Ticciati and Priya Mitchell will play with the orchestra in the double concert “Tabula Rasa”, which in its turn is dedicated to its first performers Eri Klas, Gidon Kremer and Tatiana Grindenko. The pieces performed at the concert have become the foundation for the both composers’ international acclaim.
