L. v. Beethoven_ Overture “Coriolan”, arrangement for 12 players by T. Nurk
The LAB Orchestra
Concert out of the serial “Soloists’ Symphony” // December 2014, Mustpeade Maja, Tallinn
The LAB orchestra is a new project of young musicians in Estonia. Its aim is to find new forms of music performances to strengthen classical music in the modern society.
Within the serial “Soloists’ Symphony” the LAB Orchestra plays extraordinary variations of famous symphonic works rewritten for chamber music. In the concerts the number of instruments is reduced to the absolute minimum. So each voice is played quasi by a soloist. Next to typical chamber music instruments there is also an accordion on stage which is rather unusual for orchestra pieces. This and the reduction of the players provide a completely new sound experience in which the symphonic pieces appear in a fresh and pure way.
