8th Nargenfestival Starts Tonight ({{commentsTotal}})


The Nargenfestival, billed as a synthesis of music and sea and the brainchild of conductor Tõnu Kaljuste, kicks off tonight with a concert at the Estonia Theater.

The National Symphony will perform works by Veljo Tormis, Tõnu Kõrvits, Haydn and Rachmaninoff, with Kaljuste conducting. Soloists will include Ain Anger, who has performed on many of the world's stages in recent years. He will be featured in Haydn's "The Creation."

This year, Nargen's motto is: "The streets have holes, travel by sea." The concerts shift to Haapsalu for the weekend, and the June installment of the festival winds up on Sunday. There will also be several concerts in August and September.
