Fantaasia ja Fuuga
by composer Anti Marguste, played by Hugo Lepnurm
Anti Marguste (1931 to 2016) was an Estonian composer, journalist and teacher. Anti Marguste was born on August 5th 1931 in Eavere, Estonia (then a Soviet Socialist Republic). He graduated in economics in 1953 from the Tallinna Polütehnilise Instituudi (Majandusteaduskonna), and in 1960 studied composition at the Tallinna Konservatooriumi, under Mart Saar and Anatoly Garshnek. A member of the country's composers' union, 'Eesti Heliloojate Liiduthe', since the 1960's, he also worked in the music department of the "Sirp ja Vasar" newspaper between 1959 and 1962. Since 1962, he had been a teacher at the Georg Otsa Tallinna Muusikakoolis, lecturing on compositional and music theory subjects, retiring from there in 2001. Marguste's own musical compositions were largely based on the Estonian 'folk' song, while introducing into them some novel techniques and shades of feeling. His numerous works included both large and small formats, both full symphonies and 'chorales'. His works have previously been directed by conductors such as Roman Matsov, Eri Klas, Neeme Järvi and Paul Mägi, plus many others. Several of his songs have featured in the annual choral "Festival üldlaulupidudel", and, as well as being popular in Estonia, have been performed the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Italy and other countries. In 1983, he was awarded the 'Eesti NSV' annual Soviet prize for music, and in 2013 the 'Valgetähe III Klassi Teenetemärk' ('Order of the White Star, class III'). Anti Marguste died in Are, Kreis Pärnu, on January 12th 2016, aged 84. [ Translated from: ]

Hundreds of very talented musicians pass away each year, some without much recognition at all. On "Rest In Peace", I aim to give them a fitting 'send-off', with a decent Tribute. I hope you will join me in marking their passing.....
