On the first day of August fresh and novel music of a young composer Rasmus Puuri will sound in the glass hall of Tallinn Song Festival Ground. The opening piece of the concert is 'Hellerella' for string orchestra dedicated to Tõnu Kaljuste and Nargenfestival and created last summer for opening of Hellerella garden on Naissaar island. It is followed by the string orchestra piece 'Rejoice' full of joy of life and playfullness and the four movement cycle 'Instants' capturing different moods.

The lyrical 'Longing' and a novel piece created just for this concert are played with Riivo Kallasmaa as the soloist, who is one of the most superior, talented and expressive Estonian oboe players.

One more premiere is the three movements dialogue work 'Man and woman' created for an unusual combination of artists – a male and female percussionist.

The second part of the concert is the public confession 'Ice' created together with Laur Lomper, a writer, translator and poet and performed by a string orchestra with Juuli Lill, a mezzo-soprano and soloist of the National Opera of Estonia.

Tickets on sale from 16 May.
