11th International Festival Klaver 2018

Piano festival Klaver is unique in terms of classical festivals – it is the most popular festival of classical music among Estonians. It is prestigious to perform there but it is also prestigious to be among the audience!

The largest piano festival in the Baltic and Nordic countries was first held in 1998, when its founder and artistic leader, pianist Lauri Väinmaa, wanted to bring some of the most amazing pianists (of whom Estonians knew nothing at the time) here and introduce the locals to the trends of world music. All of this occurred before the arrival of YouTube, thanks to which we can get access to almost everything in the world now. Additionally, we want to pay our respects to the 150-year-old tradition of classical piano evenings.

The festival will be held from October 5 to October 12, 2018, in Tallinn and artists include the best pianists in the world: Leif Ove Andsnes (Norway), Rudolf Buchbinder (Austria), Jeremy Denk (USA), piano duo Katia and Marielle Labèque (France), Brazil PianOrquestra, and many others.

The artistic director of the festival is Sten Lassmann.
