Fri, 30 May 2014 at 8 pm, Toompea Music Lounge, City Palace of Stackelbergs / Employers' House (Kiriku 6, Tallinn)
This time the spring concerts of the agency Corelli Music are titled
OBOE FAIRY. The concerts introduce classical wind instrument oboe and
charming young Estonian musicians Heli Ernits. Spring fresh music can be
heard in the series of Romantic Manors at wonderful Puurman Castle and
in Toompea Music Lounge at the former City Palace of Stackelbergs, today
known as Employers' House. The historical buildings fascinate with
their luxurious interior and in Toompea also with the glorious view over
the sea and the roofs of old town.
In this concert the idiosyncratic timbre of oboe will be joined by
sounds of two violins, viola and cello. The young musicians will pay a
visit from the Rostock University of Music and Theatre in Germany where
the oboe player Heli Ernits completes her studies this spring. In the
same time this Tallinn concert belongs to the 3rd year of her doctors'
studies. The kaleidoscopic concert programme includes heart-conquering
Mozart, works by English composer Bax and intriguing bits of Estonian
music. Also, the manor concert belongs to the series of popular visit
game Forgotten Manors and the concert in Toompea belongs to the
programme of 32th Tallinn Old Town Days.
This is what the Oboe Fairy herself thinks of the concert: 'I have
always thought that oboe together with certain amount of strings could
make an enjoyable ensemble. My long past concert idea will come true as I
spend this spring in Rostock. The Oboe Quartet by Mozart is a
masterpiece, this will be really striking piece to end the concert, it
will certainly make the listeners smile. As I consider myself a gold
digger, I love to discover Estonian pieces that havn't been played so
much, so I will definitely play one of the Lyrical Pieces by Heino
Eller. It will be right in the beginning as Eller is the beginning of
everything. Then we will go to England for a moment to enjoy the
pastoral and crisp temper of the Quintet by Arnold Bax. The rest of the
programme, however, has to consist of Estonian music! Dreamers, a duo
for oboe and violin, will offer more contemporary variety. It is
dedicated to Olev and Annemari Ainomäe, one of them is my teacher and
the other is my close friend. I found Sinikka's Song by Veljo Tormis
after consciously searching for a folk based vocal piece that would be
close to my heart. I really wanted to surprise audience with the
arrangement of it for oboe and strings. The composer was delighted to
hear my wish and inspired to grab a pen to rearrange the piece. For me
the sad and dreamy melody of Sinikka's Song represents homesickness that
always quietly comes over me when I am away.'
The concert with intermission lasts for 1,5 hours.
