Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra will provide the finale to our season, starting its programme with a work by the Estonian composer Arvo Pärt, who many regard as the world’s greatest living composer, in his moving tribute to Benjamin Britten.
We make no apology for programming a second Rachmaninov piano concerto in this composer’s anniversary year and Freddy Kempf’s interpretation of the Third Piano Concerto will be a highlight of the season.
The concert will end with Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony with its glorious finale, inspired by a flight of swans above Sibelius’ country home where he wrote the Symphony.
‘Kempf’s watchfulness led to miracles of co-ordination you never get when soloists are lost in their own world’ (The Arts Desk on Freddy Kempf)
