Timo Kittilä’s arrangements of the 25 etudes op. 100 for piano solo by Friedrich Burgmüller will be performed by young piano students of Tampere Conservatoire and the Camerata Martius orchestra conducted by Olli-Pekka Karppinen at Tampere Conservatoire October 30th, 2020, 19:00.

The arrangements are written for piano and a small orchestra preserving the original composition as the piano part and adding material for the orchestra in the spirit of the original music. The project enables young piano students to experience playing with an orchestra early in their studies as there is not much elementary level orchestral literature for piano.

The concert will be streamed live on the YouTube channel of Tampere Conservatoire:
