In 2022, Canadian pianist Angela Hewitt gave a very successful solo concert in the Estonia Concert Hall, which included the works of Johann Sebastian Bach. Hewitt is dedicated in particular to the interpretation of the music of Bach and in this respect, she is considered the heir to her famous compatriot, Glenn Gould. In March 2024, Hewitt will be back in Estonia and she will perform Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 with ERSO.

As with the previous concert in the Piano Concerto series, this evening we will also be hearing a work by Manuel de Falla, more specifically, a suite from his ballet El Sombrero des Tres Picos. The second half of the concert will continue with the theme of Spain, with a performance of Maurice Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. The concert will be directed by French conductor Pierre Bleuse, who is the chief conductor of the Odense Symphony Orchestra and, from the 2023/24 season, the music director of the renowned contemporary music ensemble intercontemporain.
