Internationally renowned composer Michael Nyman has composed six piano pieces connected to the piano sonatas of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, commissioned by the German pianist Sebastian Knauer. In this concert program, Sebastian Knauer combines two composers whom he highly appreciates and builds a musical bridge between the 18th and 21st centuries.


In June 2015, the Odessa Classics music festival was held in Odessa, Ukraine for the first time. Its founder, pianist Alexey Botvinov’s mission was to create a festival that would help Ukraine move closer to Europe and resist Russian-initiated military aggression. Odessa Classics has been associated with Estonia since its first days, through our musicians, festival guests and supporters.

In order not to break the tradition of the festival, Odessa Classics will have a temporary home in Estonia already for the second year. We hope you will join us in supporting the festival in these turbulent and difficult times.
