The best of Estonian jazz have come together to bring 9 new compositions to the audience, hymns to Estonian history, people and nature – our freedom. One song of joy to every decade – years that have beared beauty and pain, poverty and wealth, losing and finding, war and love.
„9 Hymns to Freedom“ is a nine-part composition by Estonian jazz composers, where every part symbolises one important event or person in the history of Estonia. Together with our best jazz musicians, the performance will also feature folk, rock, electronica and other genre musicians, together a 100 of them. The artistic director of the concert is Siim Aimla and staging director Eva Koldits.
Artistic director Siim Aimla says, that it is extraordinary to see 20 composers and jazz musicians joining their creative potential, which allows to bring completely Estonian-themed work to the audience. “The creative process is especially interesting for the musicians themselves – no pair knows what the others are writing, only the topic and line-up. Thanks to the unique pairing of the composers, we will see that the new work will be as variegated and fascinating as the history of Estonia,” said Aimla.
The authors of these nine compositions are valued jazz musicians, ensemble leaders and composers and they all have chosen interesting creative partners for themselves – Maria Faust and Kirke Karja, Kadri Voorand and Kristjan Randalu, Mingo Rajandi and Meelis Vind, Holger Marjamaa and Raun Juurikas, Mairo Marjamaa and Sander Mölder, Peedu Kass and Siim Aimla, Raul Sööt and Aleksander Paal, Joel Remmel and Paul Daniel, Tanel Ruben, Jaak Sooäär, Ivi Rausi and Laura Põldvere. Soloists will be the composers themselves or top musicians of their choosing, together with Police and Border Guard Orchestra, string quartets and choir.
In collaboration with Estonian Jazz Union and Estonia 100.
