Ensemble Hortus Musicus
Conductor Andres Mustonen
Contributing Marcel Johannes Kits (cello)
The season opening concert at the Arvo Pärt Centre will feature the renowned solo violinist Vadim Repin, accompanied by the early music ensemble Hortus Musicus. The concert programme includes musical moments from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s violin repertoire, as well as Arvo Pärt’s works.
The conductor Andres Mustonen and the violinist Vadim Repin are linked by long-term creative collaboration that started with performances of major classical works when Mustonen was conducting orchestras in Moscow. Today, these two musicians are connected through performances of new works. Their most recent collaboration was a performance of violin concertos composed by Sofia Gubaidulina and Aleksander Raskatov.
Andres Mustonen describes Vadim Repin as an ingenious artist with a very sensitive sound, able to grasp music on the fly, aware of every little detail and perceiving his role meticulously in every performance.
“My first memory of him is from the 1970s: a child prodigy in shorts performing on the stage of Estonia Concert Hall… Repin could be compared to the 19th century violin virtuoso Joseph Joachim, who was an avid first performer of new works in his time. With the help of people like that, new classical music will be performed at concert halls for decades.”
