Conductor ARVO VOLMER

The young Russian violinist Boris Brovtsyn is the winner of several prestigious international competitions. According to the Estonian conductor Arvo Volmer he stands out from his peers as a mature musician. For the last years Brovtsyn has been studying in the famous Guildhall School of Music and Drama where he recently won a gold medal playing Elgar’s Violin Concerto. The concerto that dates back to the beginning of the 20th century is one of the top romantic violin concertos.
“”Hero’s Life” by Richard Strauss is a slightly self-ironic overview of a young man’s life’s work. One can hear caleidoscopic pieces from earlier opuses, there are crises nad battles. The power and colour of the orchestra in this masterpiece is astounding.” (Arvo Volmer)

Arvo Volmer was the chief conductor of ERSO for eight seasons. Since 2004 he is the artistic director of the Estonian National Opera. He is also the music director of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and for years he has been the chief conductor and artistic director of the Oulu Symphony Orchestra.
