Sten Lassmann (piano)

In the special program of this year’s Museum Night, Sten Lassmann, one of Estonia’s most outstanding pianists, will give a concert at the Arvo Pärt Center. He has received favorable attention both in Estonia and abroad, has given successful solo and chamber concerts and performed together with several orchestras.

The solo program “Song of the Waves” brings to the listeners a colorful and varied program, in which the well-known pieces by Latvian and Lithuanian classics Čiurlionis and Vītols are interwoven with Estonian classical compositions and works of contemporary composers, while the final number of the concert is the pearl of romantic piano music, Chopin’s Ballade in G minor. In addition to the performances of new works by Riho Esko Maimets and Alo Põldmäe, the concert will also feature Lepo Sumera’s lapidary, but undeservedly forgotten piano sonata from 1971 and Arvo Pärt’s early but evergreen Sonatina no. 1. As a poetic axis, the motif of the “song of waves” connects the plan, the metamorphoses of which can be romantically ethereal, modernistically ideal-abstract, and impressionistically floating.
