Aphorisms, waltzes, folksongs from the Estonian county of Harju

A string orchestra conducted by the composer Imre Rohuv ä li also conductor of Lasnam ä and Music School Symphony Orchestra.

The program opens with the Symphony in G major by Christoph Willibald Gluck, the reformer of opera seria, to then face the Suite for strings by John Rutter, divided into four folksongs titled A-Roving, I have a bonnet trimmed with blue, O waly waly and Dashing Away , a musical fresco that brings to light his keen interest in British Isles folk music.

We then return to Viennese classicism with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozarte and his Symphony n. 1 in E flat major K 16 , composed by the enfant prodige only 8 years old and divided into three movements; a sparkling Allegro molto , a singable theme that we will later find in the Jupiter constituting the Andante , and a final Presto .

From classic to jazz with the performance of Ivy House Meet Mr. Joplin from the contemporary British Leslie Searle, a tribute to the father of ragtime Scott Joplin.

The Three aphorisms Mietteli ä if the song Ä eamaale the young composer ä P rt Uusberg framing one of the greatest soundtracks of the big screen, Pirates of the Caribbean, written by Klaus Badelt for the homonymous film directed by Jerry Bruckheimer produced by Walt Disney Pictures.

The program ends with four traditional Estonian compositions: the Canon by T. K ö rvits which finds its roots in the grandiose Bachian school; Green by V. Kell a message of hope and love for creation; The foot waltz adapted by the master director for string orchestra and taken from the national traditional repertoire; Ukuaru Valss by Arvo P ä rt, soundtrack to the 1973 film Ukuaru of Leiden Laius.
