I was totally unaware of him and his music and what was unique and appreciated was that there are speakers playing his songs there. The music was good, too.

My wife and I walked by this by accident on a Friday afternoon. The statue is nice but I was really impressed with the accordion music that was playing near the statue. Not sure if I have seen that done before. Very creative and innovative.

Raimond Valgre is a well-known Estonian composer and musician with a tragic biography - his music, loved by people, did not fix to soviet ideology.
The monument is attractive whereas you can listen there the music composed by Valgre whose the best years of life wwre passed in Pärnu..
The author of the sciuplture is a local artist Rait Pärg.
There is a tradition - the citizens of Pärnu gather on the last day of year, the day when Valgre died, to meet at the monument and light the candles.

Basic metallic, bronze, statue. No music, no nothing but if you walk by you might want to check this out. Not worth of separate visiting.

As you wander through the park you begin to hear beautiful music playing. You then come upon this beautiful statue.
Take some time to sit a few minutes and appreciate it.

A place where you can sit down, relax, listen to Francis Goya playing Raimond Valgre's songs on guitar.

The love of accordions in Baltic countries was exemplified by this life size statue. Have the typical tourist photo taken sitting next to it.
