Towers of Tallinn and brilliant musicians!
Festival “Towers of Tallinn” brings together the history of ancient Tallinn and contemporary oeuvre, introducing the city's famous silhouette inside out through different eras of music.
This year´s opening concert will take place in one of the most beautiful churches in Tallinn Old Town. It is a place where people do not find themselves very often. Church of the Transfiguration of Our Lord charms with Estonia’s biggest and most spectacular baroque iconostasis, Tallinn’s oldest tower bell and excellent acoustics. Following concerts will take place on the outdoor stage of the beautifully renovated medieval wall tower called the Maiden Tower and in the quondam mightiest building of the Dominican Order which stood unused for a long time, but has a future full of hope - St. Catherine's Church.
20.00 St. Catherines Church (Katariina Kirik, Vene 14a, Tallinn)
Concert „Lightning Faced“
PERFORMER: Avarus Trio
Mingo Rajandi (double bass), Mari-Liis Vihermäe (flutes), Karl-Johan Kullerkupp (vibraphone, percussion)
PROGRAMME: mystical world of sounds – Mingo Rajandi, Tigran Hamasyan , Chick Corea etc.
The sound of Avarus Trio is airy and bright. The flowing astral sound fields that are clearly with Nordic characteristics alternate with rhythmic and dashing spirit which sources can be found from the music of further and hot-spirited cultures. The trio plays with child-like glee and adventurous joy and moves lissomly on the borderline of composed material and improvisations.
