„Liilee ja lailee – thinking of Veljo Tormis“

The melodies and Estonian runo-tunes of Veljo Tormis’ cycle “Ingrian evenings” take a fresh look at the masterpiece to find a way deep into audience’s hearts. Liisi Koikson and Paul Daniel draw inspiration from the rich source of folk music and their experiences in the ensemble Elletuse, the duo of Jaak Sooäär and Tuule Kann have introduced Estonian folk music both locally and abroad. This year’s winner of Danske Jazz Award – Kadri Voorand – has been playing, singing, and dancing in Lahemaa folk instrumental orchestra since childhood. The opening concert of Autumn Jazz is dedicated to Veljo Tormis.
