Description

Programme:

Heino Eller

– Elegy
– Lyrical Suite
– Nenia
– Sinfonietta
– Five Pieces for String Orchestra

In 2022, we will be celebrating the 135th anniversary of the birth of composer Heino Eller, composition teacher for many Estonian composers and founder of his own school. His work has become a symbol of the Estonian national sound: a blend of rugged Nordic natural lyricism, folk melodies and intonations, combined with a chamber-like and detailed style of expression. Eller, who was primarily a composer of instrumental works, also played an important role in Arvo Pärt’s development as his composition teacher, contributing among other things to his love of string orchestra music. In a concert dedicated to Eller’s anniversary, Tõnu Kaljuste will showcase the composer’s best examples of this genre.
