The Kymi Sinfonietta welcomes Estonian bassoon superstar and multiple Grammy nominee Martin Kuuskmann. Contemporary music occupies a large role in his repertoire. Together with Olari Elts he is now to play the Bassoon Concerto by Iceland’s Páll Ragnar Pálsson, a joint commission from the Kymi Sinfonietta and the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. The Overture by Reynaldo Hahn is a real treat, with its feel for nature, its playfulness and its wonderful optimism.
