Maksim Štšura (piano, Estonia)

Janaček. “On an Overgrown Path” (Po zarostlém chodníčku)
Shostakovich. Prelude and Fugue in D minor No. 24 Op. 87
Hindemith. “Ludus Tonalis”

Maksim Štšura, winner of the 7th Estonian Piano Competition (2008), is an exceptionally capable musician and an internationally acknowledged pianist. In addition to his tight performance and recording schedule as a member of the Foyle-Štšura duo, Maksim recently defended his doctoral dissertation at the Royal College of Music in London, and since 2020 has been a lecturer at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.

For his Estonian audience, Maksim will be performing “Ludus Tonalis”, the great piece by Paul Hindemith – the most important German composer of the twentieth century and the main master of the neo-Classical style. Hindemith’s “Ludus tonalis” is the most important reflection on Bach’s ‘Well-Tempered Clavier’ in the music of the twentieth century, next to Shostakovich’s twenty-four preludes and fugues, and demands a special musical intellect and expressive energy from the interpreter.

The first half of the concert will include the folk song-inspired cycle of poetic miniatures by the Czech composer Leoš Janáček entitled “On an Overgrown Path”, and Shostakovich’s catching and dramatic Prelude and Fugue No. 24 in D minor.
