Name: Ts. Enkhtur

Type of artist: pianist


Background: Enkhtur began music schooling at age eight, but had been experimenting on the piano since he was four. “ My father was a composer, and the atmosphere in our home was always filled with music,” Enkhtur explains. He went on to study eight years at the Music and Dance College, five years in Moscow at the Professional Academic School, and four years at the Mongolian University of Culture and Arts, where he now teaches. He also performs annual concerts, and has performed in Japan, China, Russia, the United States, and the Ukraine.


Inspiration and audience: “Playing is part of my life. No matter what is happening, I can play. The feeling in my music depends on my mood for the day. Like a painter and his or her painting, I play from my mood, but the audience brings to the experience their own mood and feelings. I can’t control their impressions.”

Importance of his upcoming May concert: This concert’s program includes only pieces for piano by Mongolian composers. One of the pieces has never been played on stage before; others haven’t been performed for ten or twenty years.

Enkhtur said that although there are many great Mongolian works for piano, even Mongolians do not know them well. “During Socialism, everything in the arts was planned, and the government financed it. After the transition, there was nothing. Nobody cares. No one knows.” One of the main goals of the concert is to (re)introduce Mongolian classical music to both foreign and domestic audiences. “Mongolian compositions for piano can be one of the faces of Mongolian arts presented to the world. Classical music is a world art.”
He said that if he doesn’t do this concert and promote Mongolian classical music, few others will. “It is a necessity. This music should not just be in the archives, forgotten.”


Future activities: Enkhtur plans to produce a CD of this recorded concert, the first of all Mongolian classical piano music. This concert will be followed by more concerts this year, including one of great world compositions and modern classical music. In the meantime, he will travel to Japan to perform in late May.

Upcoming concert details: Enkhtur will perform his all-Mongolian works for piano concert on May 4th at 7 pm at the Opera and Ballet Theater. Also performing in the concert will be Munkhbold, violin, and Munkhbat, cello, and the Opera and Ballet Theater’s orchestra. Tickets are available at the Opera and Ballet Theater ticket office, 99194570.
