For the first time, the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra will have a tour organised by one of the most renowned international agencies, IMG Artists.
The opening concert of the tour is held in the Golden Hall of the Wiener Musikverein, the home of the Vienna Philharmonic. Next to Konzerthaus Berlin, this is the second venue considered one of the most prominent in the world that Maestro Järvi and ENSO are visiting. Their next concert will be held in the Brucknerhaus in Linz within the International Bruckner Festival programme. Neeme Järvi and the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra will perform at Brucknerfest, a festival held since 1974, alongside the Bruckner Orchestra Linz and conductor Markus Poschner, the Munich Philharmonic and conductor Valery Gergiev, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées with Philippe Herreweghe, the Konzerthausorchester Berlin, and many others.
The third concert of the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra with conductor Neeme Järvi will be the final concert in this year’s Dvořák Prague International Music Festival. The Dvořák Hall in Rudolfinum is home to the Czech Philharmonic and has witnessed the most important concerts of the famous Prague Spring music festival for over 70 years. The Dvořák Festival in Prague has been held as of 2008 and has featured Estonian musicians such as Paavo Järvi, and Tõnu Kaljuste with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, performing music by Arvo Pärt.
Two concerts will be held in Germany – in Erlangen and Viersen – conducted by Mihhail Gerts, and the last concert of the tour will be performed in Austria, in the Bodensee Hall of the Festspielhaus in Bregenz.
