Paavo Järvi’s Estonian Festival Orchestra « is a real living animal with a beating heart and an appetite for adventure, the conductor says in a press realase. Until now the Estonian Festival Orchestra, founded by Paavo Järvi in 2011, has performed only at the Pärnu Music Festival, but in August 2017 it will make its first tour performing in neighbouring countries around the Baltic coast and at Scandinavia’s most prominent festivals. In January 2018 the orchestra will then spread its wings further afield with concerts already planned in the major European capitals, including Brussels, Berlin, Vienna, Zurich and Luxembourg. This tour, which also celebrates the 100th anniversary of Estonian Independence, will include a new orchestral work by Estonian composer, Erkki-Sven Tüür, which will receive its international premiere in Brussels on 18 January 2018.
