The concert series Amadeus is supported by RADISSON COLLECTION HOTEL TALLINN
ERSO’s new concert series Amadeus will begin with the opening concert of ERSO’s 97th season. This brand-new concert series is a homage to the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The evening will be opened by Tõnu Kõrvits’s new work for brass orchestra and percussion instruments. The two movements of the work each open one half of the concert, serving as an introduction to the classical repertoire.
Mozart’s last and most complex symphony, Symphony No. 41, also known as Jupiter, will be performed at this concert. The soloist of the concert will be the young and outstanding Estonian violinist Hans Christian Aavik, who also worked with the ERSO last season. At the Christmas concert in 2022, he performed Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 2, and this time, he will be performing an excerpt from another Viennese classic, Ludwig van Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, the first monumental work in its genre and the forerunner for later Romantic violin concertos.
