Olari Elts’s other new concert series is “Viola in my Life” focusing on top viola players from round the world. It would, says Elts, be a pity not to use such a resource. Some solo violists also lead their concerts. First on the list is the celebrated Brit Lawrence Power, in a programme that cleverly links early repertoire with works by British composers. The other soloist is velvety-voiced Irish tenor Robin Tritschler.
Meet the artists at 17.45 Kotka Concert Hall, lower floor: Vausti Restaurant. Interview with violist Lawrence Power and tenor Robin Tritschler.
