Estonian composer and pianist Rein Rannap has always been notorious for his ability to mix different genres.  His post-modernist works in classical idiom are a genuine cross-over, noticeably influenced by popular music. Rannap has composed all kind of music: symphonic, band, chamber, choral, for film and theater etc.; but more than anything else he has written popular songs, and – of course for the piano. Rannap was glorious as a leader of, and songwriter for the most popular rock group ever in Estonia – Ruja. Many of his popular and rock songs have become evergreens, and are still actively performed by the young artists.
