Two concerti on two different instruments with Greater Columbus Community Orchestra, Olev Viro, conductor. Ester Magi is an internationally recognized Estonian woman composer who is celebrating her 95th birthday in January.

Soaring, sweet, melancholy lyricism, poignant pianissimos coupled with the majestic, heroic, and high flying circus act.
