Beloved classical stars, the twins Katariina Maria Kits (violin) and Marcel Johannes Kits (cello), will perform a vibrant and captivating concert featuring compositions for violin and cello duo. This programme intertwines graceful sounds of classicism, the delicate hues of impressionism, the lively beauty of minimalism, and some spicy tones of contemporary music. Within this diverse selection, music from many countries is represented, including Estonian music.
