In March, Tähe-Lee Liiv, a young pianist who has won numerous competitions, will perform Piano Concerto by Edvard Grieg with ERSO. The concert will be conducted by Brazilian conductor Simone Menezes, a musician with a creative and innovative approach who brilliantly combines classical and contemporary works. Her long-term mentor has been Paavo Järvi, at whose invitation she has participated in the Pärnu Music Festival and collaborated with the German Chamber Philharmonic in Bremen (Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen).

For the first time ever, ERSO will play Lili Boulanger – they will perform Of a Sad Evening, originally created for a piano trio. The suite Bachianas Brasileiras No. 7 by the Brazilian composer Heitor Villa-Lobos combines the complexity of Johann Sebastian Bach with the intonations of Brazilian music.
