The collaboration between Talvi Hunt and Kadri-Ann Sumera has been brief but very fruitful. Their debut at the 2019 ISCM World Music Days in Tallinn became an instant favourite of the audience and received rave reviews. The duo of Talvi and Kadri-Ann is enriched by the musicians’ broad horizon – while Talvi is dedicated to performing contemporary music and also specialised on it in Luzern, Kadri-Ann’s repertoire is versatile and includes music from Baroque to the most newest compositions available. Therefore, the ensemble benefits from the strong suits of both musicians. In addition to music, the pianists share a passion of demolishing houses and bicycling in the woods.
Alongside Latvian and Lithuanian music, the concert will include the premieres of three new pieces composed especially for the duo. The main title of the festival, “DNA”, provides an additional meaning for the interpretation of ancient runic songs in the composition of Ardo Ran Varres, the archaic kannel sounds in Lauri Jõeleht’s piece and the intertwined musical passages in Krists Auzniek’s music. To narrow the DNA hints down, Kadri-Ann will also perform a piece by her own gene provider – In Es by his father, Lepo Sumera.
