THE ESTONIAN FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA
The Estonian Festival Orchestra was founded by Paavo Järvi in 2011 and made it’s debut at the Pärnu Music Festival.
It is a result of the long dreamed of ambition by Järvi to create a hand picked orchestra, bringing together the best of Estonian talent – including members of the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra – and leading musicians from around the World. This August the orchestra makes it’s first tour performing in countries around the Baltic coast and at Scandinavia’s most prominent festivals. In January 2018 the orchestra will then spread it’s wings further afield with concerts in the major European Capitals.
The concert is dedicated to the Estonian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and to the 100th birthday of the Republic of Estonia.
