The renowned French clarinetist Michel Lethiec gives us an appointment in Estonia ! Renowned musician on the international scene, he is used to concerts and festivals. He will be this time at the opening concert of the Juu Jääb festival, in June 27th. He will perform in a chamber music, accompanied by the Estonian saxophonist Villu Veski and Omar Massa, the Argentian bandoneon. The festival opens with the "Evening in New York," and honors the opera Porgy & Bess.

Porgy & Bess is an opera, first played in 1935 in New York's Carnegie Hall, in which black beggar Porgy is a crippled trying to save his beloved Bess. The opera is a combination of American jazz, popular music and European orchestral techniques. This choice is in the present context of an Europe facing racism issues through the question of migration.

Michel Lethiec is a performer of comtemporary music, and he played the musics of Fourchotte, Scolari Giraud, Lee, Pendercki and many others. He is teaching at the National Conservatory of Music in Paris and at the Conservatoire de Nice. During his career, the clarinetist played with the Philharmonic Orchestra of St. Petersburg, the English Chamber Orchestra and of Israel and the Salzburg Mozarteum. He is also a Knight in the Order of Merit and the Order of Arts and Letters.
