Joseph Joachim (June 28, 1831 – August 15, 1907) was a Hungarian violinist, conductor, composer and teacher. A close collaborator of Johannes Brahms, he is widely regarded as one of the most significant violinists of the 19th century.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Joachim 
Kalevipoeg (Kalev’s son) is an epic hero-giant, son of a hero Kalev in Estonian mythology; Estonian epic poem about him bears the same name. Original image of Kalevipoeg was represented by a giant, whose activities and deeds were associated with the peculiarities of local landscape: loads of stones, thrown together by Kalevipoeg, plains – places, where Kalevipoeg mowed down the trees, hill ranges – traces of his ploughing, lakes – his wells, sites of ancient settlement – his bed, and so on. Kalevipoeg also fought against evil spirits, people’s oppressors and foreign enemies. On the basis of folk stories and songs Estonian writer and doctor Friedrich Reinhold Kreutzwald (1803—1882) compiled epic poem “Kalevipoeg”, resembling that of Finnish origin - “Kalevala”, in 1857-1861, which made a great influence on Estonian literature.  
Toell the Great (Estonian: Suur Tõll) in Estonian mythology is a great giant hero who lived according to the legend on the Baltic Sea island of Saaremaa (Ösel).He lived in Tõlluste village with his wife Piret. He tossed huge rocks everywhere, mostly aiming for his archenemy Vanatühi or other enemies of Saaremaa people. Tõll was king of Saaremaa but he lived as common farmer. He often visited his brother on the neighboring Hiiumaa (Dagö) island. He was so tall that he could almost walk there (The distance is something about 5 to 6 km long). His walking stick was a 5 fathoms spruce tree trunk. Tõll was always kind and ready to help, but very hot-tempered. He loved to eat cabbages, drink beer and go to the sauna (his wife was always busy gathering him sauna stove rocks).DeathWhen an enemy decapitated him, he put his head on his sword and walked to his grave, which is supposed to be somewhere in Tõlluste. When Tõll died, he promised to rise from grave and help people in case of war. But naughty children made fun of him by yelling "Tõll, Tõll, wake up, there is a war in the yard". Tõll rose, grew angry and went back to his grave, swearing never to come back.TheoriesIt is supposed that stories about Toell the Great are based on historical very tall elder of Saaremaa. Sometimes he is connected with local German (or Germanized) noble family Toll. Some members of that family are told to have been very tall (more than 2.10 meters).Modern DayIn Ninase village there are two old windmills reshaped into the figures or Tõll and Piret. Newlyweds of Saaremaa go there to pay tribute to the mythical heroes of their island.Toell the Great has inspired several and cartoon movie "Suur Tõll" (Tallinnfilm 1980)[1]."Suur Tõll" is also the name of the biggest preserved steam icebreaker in the world, built in Stettin in 1914. Main article (in Estonian): Suur Tõll (laev).http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toell_the_Great
