3rd concert of the VALLEY OF SOUND series

Symphony No 1 in B flat major, Op. 38 (Spring)    ~35’

Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
Conductor JOSEPH SWENSEN


ERSO will bring its spring-inspired programme, featuring works by Dvořák and Schumann, to the audience under the direction of conductor Joseph Swensen. The conductor, who has already won the support of both the audience and the orchestra twice, is the artistic director of the NFM Leopoldinum Orchestra (Wroclaw), Conductor Emeritus of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, and Principal Guest Conductor of Orquesta Ciudad de Granada. In addition to conducting, Swensen is a violinist, composer, and educator, and has studied the impact of music on children’s development. Swensen has previously served as Principal Guest Conductor and Artistic Adviser of the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris, Principal Conductor of Malmö Opera, and Principal Conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.


As the government decided in March to cancel all indoor public events, the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (ERSO) will perform in an empty hall this month: all Friday night concerts will take place and the audience will have the opportunity to enjoy the concert experience on ERSO TV and Klassikaraadio.

All tickets for performances in March can be exchanged for an ERSO TV access code, which is valid for two months, or an ERSO gift card, which is valid for 12 months and can be used to purchase a ticket for future concerts. Naturally, the tickets are also refundable. Tickets for concerts cancelled in March 2021 (5, 12, and 26 March) can be exchanged and returned until 30 April 2021.
