The ENSO’s 2018 USA tour is dedicated to the Estonia’s centenary celebrations.

Shortly before the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Estonia, ENSO will go on its third concert tour in the United States. On its first American tour in 2009, concerts were conducted by Eri Klas and the principal conductor back then, Nikolai Alexeev. In 2013 the orchestra performed under the batons of Neeme Järvi and Nikolai Alexeev. This time concerts will be conducted by Neeme Järvi and Arvo Volmer, ENSO’s current and former principal conductors, respectively.

Soloists:

Triin Ruubel.

Triin Ruubel (violin), leader of ENSO, has gained recognition as an energetic leader of the orchestra as well as a violin virtuoso. She debuted as a soloist with ENSO at the opening concert of the 2015/16 season, performing the Violin Concerto by Sibelius under the baton of Neeme Järvi. She has also performed as a soloist with other orchestras both Estonian and international. Ruubel is a member of various chamber ensembles and teaches at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.

 

 

Benjamin Beilman.

Benjamin Beilman (violin) is recognized as one of the fastest rising stars of his generation, winning praise both for his passionate performances and deep rich tone which the Washington Post called “mightily impressive,” and The New York Times described as “muscular with a glint of violence.” The Times also praised his “handsome technique, burnished sound, and quiet confidence which showed why he has come so far so fast.” Following his First Prize win at the Montreal Competition, the Strad described his performance of the Sibelius Violin Concerto as “pure poetry.”
