On Sunday, 9 June at 4 p.m., Ene Nael and her pleasantly intriguing harpsichord will appear at the Tallinn Art Hall as part of the SOOLO concert series!
Ene Nael started studying music at the Karksi-Nuia Children’s Music School, and in 1986, continued her studies in Ell Saviauk’s piano class at the Tallinn Secondary Music School. In 1994, she graduated from the Estonian Academy of Music, having studied piano with Professor Laine Mets and harpsichord with Professor Imbi Tarum. In the spring of 2000, she defended her MA in music at the academy, specialising in chamber ensemble. She has participated in master’s courses held by various well-known musicians in Estonia, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, France and Italy. In 2000, Ene Nael won first prize at the Bach 250 competition held at the Estonian Academy of Music.
She has performed as a soloist with orchestras, played in various baroque music orchestras and chamber ensembles. She participates actively as a harpsichordist in Estonian music festivals. Besides playing old music, she also often performs contemporary music, and has played at the premiere performances of works for the harpsichord composed by various Estonian composers. Ene Nael is a member of the Una Corda ensemble (Estonian zither, harp, harpsichord). In January 2012, the trio’s first recording of Estonian music called UNA CORDA was released.
E. Nael works as a keyboard teacher at the Music School of the Old Town College, and is one of the most active developers of the methodology for teaching harpsichord in Estonia.
In addition, she actively participates in the work of the Estonian Guild of Harpsichord Friends, and since 2000, has organised a summer camp for historical keyboard instruments and orchestral music. Since 1999, she has also been a member of the organising team for the international Harpsichord Festival.
‘Chicks are counted in the spring! The 19th annual Estonian artists’ exhibition – filled with colours and thoughts – will be concluded with a concert that combines its musical selections. The programme includes works that I, as an ‘uncompromising’ chamber musician, have come across in one way or another. And this during the last 19 years!’
The SOOLO concerts are produced in cooperation with the Tallinn Art Hall, curator Robert Jürjendal. Entrance to the concert with Tallinn Art Hall exhibition ticket.
