MISORA OZAKI piano, ERSO, conductor HENRI CHRISTOFER AAVIK
In 2021, Misora Ozaki was awarded the third prize and the ERSO Special Prize at the 2021 Tallinn International Piano Competition. This season, we are welcoming the young pianist back to Tallinn. Our own young conductor, Henri Christofer Aavik, will be conducting one of the most romantic piano concertos, Robert Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A minor.
Aavik has recently earned attention in Europe by winning the first prize in the Jorma Panula Conducting Competition and the second prize in the Yevgeny Svetlanov International Conducting Competition. In fact, the young conductor has called Neeme Järvi, a long-time ERSO Chief Conductor, one of the most important role models in his conducting career. ERSO will also be performing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Symphony No. 36 and the overture The Hebrides by another musical child prodigy Felix Mendelssohn.
