Kadri-Ann Sumera is one of the most outstanding and sought-after Estonian pianists of her generation. She is engaged as soloist as well as chamber musician and accompanist and her repertoire covers a wide range from baroque to contemporary music. She has premiered pieces written for her (for example Piano Concerto of Märt-Matis Lill and “A rebours” by Nicolas Gilbert) and performed on several Estonian premieres of the key works of the 20th century such as Karlheinz Stockhausen’s “Mantra” for two pianos and electronics (with Sabine Simon and Hendrik Manook), Olivier Messiaen’s “Harawi” for soprano and piano (with Kai Kallastu) and John Cage’s “Dances for two prepared pianos” (with Hanna Heinmaa). Sumera has been involved in multimedia performances. Estonian piano music holds an important place in her repertoire, especially the works of her father Lepo Sumera, one of Estonia’s main composer of all times.

Talvi Hunt is a diverse pianist whose main interest lies in interpreting the music of 20th and 21st century. Her performances during the past three years have mostly connected her to Switzerland and Germany. Talvi has played in several music collectives such as Luzerne Symphony Orchestra, Collegium Novum Zürich, Ensemble Ö; she has been regularly invited to play in Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. Since 2014, Talvi Hunt belongs to Ensemble of Nomad as a pianist and one of the artistic directors. The ensemble mainly focuses on contemporary music including the elements of electronics, video art and theatre. Talvi has collaborated with several known composers such as Helmut Lachenmann, Wolfgang Rihm, Peter Ablinger, Enno Poppe, Michael Wertmüller, Jürg Wyttenbach, Thomas Adès, Unsuk Chin and Michel van der Aa.
