Immediately after the end of the season, ERSO and Olari Elts will go on a concert trip to Great Britain. Before that, however, the British pianist and soloist Freddy Kempf will be in Estonia to perform much-loved piano concertos by Sergei Rachmaninoff for two consecutive weeks. On 5 May, he will perform Piano Concerto No. 1. The programme also includes Song of the Enchanter by Thea Musgrave and Symphony No. 5 by Jean Sibelius.

Freddy Kempf is a pianist with a wide repertoire and a unique reputation who made his debut at the age of 8 in front of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Today, he is a welcome guest in concert halls around the world. His interpretation of Rachmaninoff has been praised for its inner filigree and colossal but perfect weight (The Art Desk).
