Introduction

Programme:
Eller. Symphonic Scherzo in A Major
Prokofiev. „Sinfonia concertante“ Op. 125
Tubin. Symphony No. 3

Until 1944, Tartu, the cradle of Estonian national culture, was home to Eduard Tubin – the greatest Estonian symphonic composer. The opening concert of revives the brilliance of pre-war cultural life of Tartu, and focuses on years Tubin lived in Tartu. His Symphony No. 3 together with Tubin’s teacher Heino Eller’s “Symphonic Scherzo” will be performed.

In addition, Sergei Prokofiev’s cello concert “Sinfonia Concertante” dates back to 1934, a year when Tubin met Prokofiev in person when a great Russian composer gave a concert in Tartu.
