Pärnu City Orchestra and the chief conductor Kaspar Mänd started 2021 with the world premiere of composer Alisson Kruusmaa´s piano concerto “As if a river was singing...”.

The piece was written for pianist Johan Randvere and is inspired by the the river as a figure, which throughout the time has had countless meanings in different cultures - time and eternity, consciousness and subconsciousness, freedom and enlightenment. Kruusmaa’s music originates from water and its mysterious sides and shades, centered on fluidity, vastitude, contrasts and its endless course. Young composer’s dream was to write a music in this genre and long collaboration with pianist Johan Randvere gave the impulse for it. During the years, Randvere has premiered several Kruusmaa’s solo works - Suite for Solo Piano (2013) and Paper Flowers (2019)- and also chamber music.

Alisson Kruusmaa´s music is best described through etherial, fragile and spacious soundscapes featuring a delicate and sparse orchestration which gives listeners some time to reflect. Kruusmaa’s most significant works are Mesmerism for clarinet and piano (2015), Piece for Solo Piano and Symphony Orchestra (2015), Songs of Silver Light for mezzo soprano, trumpet and piano (2017) and Silence of Birds for mixed choir (2017).
