A PLETHORA OF PIANISTS
Arbo Valdma and his students from Estonia, Japan, China and Germany will play piano music written for 2, 4, 6 and 8 hands. The works are from composers including Beethoven, Schubert, Saint-Saëns, Orff and Pärt.
The pianos and pianists can’t make it without an audience, so you’re kindly asked to come and listen to them! We promise that a beautiful and sonorous piano concert will make you feel exceptionally good. It’s enlightening, cleansing and gluten-free, and will make you an even better person. We’ll guarantee it. If you’ll find that we failed and you came off worse, then we’ll invite you out for a morning coffee to have a heart-to-heart talk about the weather, people, music and (why not) Pärnu. Just so you’d feel good.

OVER 100 BARS OF PIANO VOYAGES
Works by Mozart, Chopin, Liszt, Bartok, Stravinsky and Ligeti.
Many of us have had a secret dream of listening to a piano programme and instantly recognizing each and every work at the concert like a true aficionado. This concert is a good chance to make that dream come true. Pianists from the Suveuni master class will bring you the crème de la crème of piano classics.

THE KEY CONCERT OF SUVEUNI
Pärnu City Orchestra and soloists.
Delectable piano concertos by Beethoven, Czerny, Grieg, Schumann and Saint-Saëns for music connoisseurs to indulge in.
Pianist and music pedagogue Arbo Valdma told at the 2017 Suveuni concert that he has often felt encouraged by a sentence by Beethoven: “There must be a key”. Arbo Valdma said that he has found his key on the coat of arms of Pärnu: it’s the key city for him and his success. At the 100th Anniversary of the Estonian Republic he will bring several keys to beautiful music and our senses.
