Концерт состоялся 31 October 2018 года

Music of the World's Cathedrals

The Colourful World

The concert featured:

Organist at the Evangelical Lutheran Cathedral of Saint Mary the Virgin in Tallinn
Kadri Ploompuu (Estonia)

Programme: S. Scheidt, H. Scheidemann, J. S. Bach, M. Zariņš, N. Hakim and others

Kadri Ploompuu is an organist from Estonia. Like Bach, she belongs to the Lutheran tradition, so it will be especially interesting to listen to her interpretation of Bach’s masterpieces. Her programme also features predecessors of the great composer.

The second part of the recital is a spectacular collection of pieces of contemporary organ music: the best Estonian authors and a most interesting French-Lebanese composer Naji Hakim.
