Listen to the programme:

The Piano Concerto series will begin in November, under the direction of Olari Elts, combining the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Japanese composers Tōru Takemitsu and Toshio Hosokawa. The concert begins with Takemitsu’s work Tree Line and ends with Mozart’s Symphony No. 39, which is one of the composers last three works in this genre.

The soloist for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 will be Kalle Randalu. Randsalu recently performed all of Beethoven’s piano concertos with ERSO, but it is in fact Mozart whose music he has recorded and released on albums the most. ‘I have loved Mozart my whole life and when possible, I play his works again and again. He is the greatest gift, and not just for pianists, but for music lovers in general,’ Randalu told the Postimees in an interview. Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 is tied with another work to be performed by Randalu, Toshio Hosokawa’s Lotus Under the Moonlight, which is a homage to the beloved composer.
