Liisa Hõbepappel is a freelance writer and composer. This spring she is set to graduate the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre with a degree in composition (supervisor Toivo Tulev). She uses the language of sound to describe and conceptualise various social and cultural phenomena. Her creations have been likened to fine graphic art.
Hõbepappel's creations have been performed, among others, by the Italian contemporary classic ensemble L’Arsenale, the Belgian quartet Fractales, the Estonian National Men's Choir, the girls' choir Ellerhein, the young men's choir of the Estonian National Opera, the string quartet Prezioso, pianist Sten Heinoja, mezzo sopran Iris Oja, and many others. Her journalistic work has been published by the cultural periodical Sirp, and she has also been a contributor at Klassikaraadio.
Tallinn Music Week will feature the world premiere of Liisa's work, composed especially for the festival and performed by ensemble Trio’95.
According to the author, when composing this work, she focused on using music to describe non-musical phenomena, with the aim of speaking to the listener through this novel work on significant topics, intertwining conventional as well as innovative expressive means.
