Concert series “Summer classics in Kadriorg”
Programme: Songs and letters by Mart Saar
Arete Kerge (soprano)
Sten Heinoja (piano)
Love Letters are read by actress Anu Lamp
Mart Saar the Estonian composer that has composed the biggest number of solo songs. His songs are meticulously composed wholes, often the piano part having the same role as the vocal part. The composer has mostly used texts by Juhan Liiv, Karl Eduard Sööt and Anna Haava, but he has also written lyrics himself. Mart Saar uses the texts quite liberally, the way which is best suited to maximize the importance of the word. The texts of the songs by Saar predominantly speak about nature, love and death. Anu Lamp reads excerpts of letters by Mart Saar to his beloved(s).
