The breathtaking capital of Estonia, Tallinn, will be hosting the 7th edition of the Chamber Music Festival this Fall, from 11-25 September 2011 at Tallinn Town Hall, Hopner House, St John’s Church and St Michael’s Swedish church. The festival this year is part of the official programme of Tallinn 2011 – European Capital of Culture, however its tradition can be traced back to 2005, when its first edition was received with vivid enthusiasm by both public and participants.
This year, the 7th Tallinn Chamber Music Festival programme includes 13 concerts offering – for the first time – chamber opera, an impressive selection from leading Estonian musicians and outstanding performances from guest artists. Here are a few highlights from the programme: F. Liszt 200 presented by the Belgian embassy at the Hopneri maja saal; Baroque opera – Purcell’s ‘Dido & Aeneas’ – at Jaani kirik; Artimus ensemble piano trio at Tallinna Raekoda; and Concerto di Belcanto at Tallinna Raekoda as well.
