In co-operation with the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra and the cities of Kotka and Tallinn
One of Estonia’s most renowned orchestras, the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, joins forces with the Kymi Sinfonietta for inspiring concerts in Tallinn and Kotka conducted by Olari Elts. The concerts also celebrate the long, 70-year ties of friendship between the two cities. The cornerstones of the concert programme are the enchanting Baroque-style Suite by Johann Friedrich Fasch and the passionate Double Concerto by Bohuslav Martinů, both highlighting the two orchestras’ ability to tackle the most varied of repertoire. Crowning the concert is the Burlesque composed by the young Richard Strauss and one of his favourite works, and the four festive interludes from his opera ‘Intermezzo’. The soloist is Estonian Irina Zahharenkova, a pianist active on both side of the Gulf of Finland.
