Heino Eller (1887 - 1970)
« on: February 09, 2013, 01:02:05 PM »
Our normal General Musicianship teacher at Junior Academy today was not here, so we had Sten Lassmann, who turns out to be the champion of the Estonian composer Heino Eller. We studied his Toccata, which is pretty impressive in terms of structure and melodic use, and a brilliant piece also. Quite keen to explore more of his music now, especially with the enthusiasm Lassmann expressed to us for this composer as you can imagine!

Here he is playing the Toccata:

Any thoughts? :)
