Leigo Lake Music 2013 Programme
This year’s Leigo Lake Music Festival will take place on August 2nd & 3rd. Both days of the festival feature three concerts and as usual, the first day of the festival, the 2nd of August, will offer exciting performers from the light music scene and the second day of the festival, 3rd of August, will be dedicated to classical music.
2nd of August, the concerts will begin at 18:30

• 20:30–21.30 Inna Zhelannaya
The singer started her career in a Russian band Alyans (Альянс). In 1994, Inna founded her first band Inna Zhelannaya and Farlanders. Within a few years, she also released her first album and one piece was included on the award-winning world music album One World, with such artists such as Peter Gabriel and Bob Marley.
The group broke up in 2004, as Inna felt that their creative growth was modest. In 2007, the singer performed with her new band with great success both at home and abroad. And without exaggerating, it can be said that this group combines the best masters of the music world, such as bass guitarist Sеrgei Kalachev aka Grebstel, saxophonist Оleg Маryakhin, drummer Dmitri Frolov and sound master Vladimir Gubatov.
• 22:00–23:00 Concert of Sven Grünberg’s film music
On the 2nd of August, the best pieces of Sven Grünberg’s film music will resound amid the scenic lakes of Leigo. Grünberg’s name is probably known well enough, as he was elected the Composer of the Century in film music by the audience of Klassikaraadio. He has written music to more than 130 films both from home and abroad. He has worked with Finnish, Japanese, Polish, Russian, German and other foreign film companies, including some Hollywood studios. In Leigo, his best known pieces of music from films such as “HAH”, “The Dead Mountaineer Hotel”, “Wikman's boys”, “Naksitrallid”, “Ladybirds' Christmas”, “Lotte from Gadgetville” and “December Heat” will be performed. Along with the best pieces of film music, the audience will have an exceptional opportunity to listen to a longer composition, “Bond”, which was created and performed with the former Estonian first progressive rock group The Mess.
3rd of August, the concerts will begin at 18:30
