Neeme Jarvi

September 26, 2014 at 7 pm — Estonia Concert Hall

1st concert of the MASTERCLASS series

Richard Strauss. “Festliches Präludium” (“Festive Prelude”)
Amy Beach. Symphony in E minor, “Gaelic”
Alma Mahler. Orchestral Songs
Richard Strauss. Tone Poem “Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche” (“Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks”)

Lilli Paasikivi (mezzo-soprano)
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra

The second opening concert of the season under the baton of maestro Neeme Järvi will be dedicated to the 150th anniversary of Richard Strauss, the most famous German composer and conductor of his time. This year, opera houses and concert halls around the world have given his operas and instrumental works pride of place. A special 10-euro silver coin was released in Germany depicting a portrait of Richard Strauss surrounded by the text “Richard Strauss – 150. Geburtstag”.

Two pieces by female composers will be performed at the concert – “Gaelic Symphony” by American composer Amy Beach, and songs by Alma Mahler, wife of Gustav Mahler, arranged for orchestra by Finnish conductor Jorma Panula.

The soloist will be Lilli Paasikivi – leading mezzo-soprano of the Finnish National Opera and since the 2013/14 season also its artistic director – whose meaningful and intelligent performances of Alma Mahler’s orchestral songs have been compared to precious jewels that any vocal music lover could not resist.

Lilli Paasikivi has performed in front of ENSO many times, appearing as soloist in Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 and Sibelius’s opera “The Maiden in the Tower” under the baton of Paavo Järvi. The opera by Sibelius was recorded for Virgin Classics and received great praise from the international press.

Tickets 22 € /  16 €*
