Conductor Nikolai Alexeev

At the final concert of the season we are happy to greet Nikolai Alexeev on the podium again – he was the principal conductor of ERSO from 2001 to 2010. With Mahler’s monumental Third Symphony he continues the series of powerful large-scale compositions. The press called the last of them, the Estonian premiere of Messiaen’s Turangalīla Symphony a great musical event, thanks to ERSO’s brilliant ensemble and the soloists’ filigree performance. (Igor Garshnek, Sirp, 15.10.10). When writing about the last season of ERSO, Toomas Velmet stated that “principal conductor Alexeev’s programmes were nearly a hundred percent success…” (Toomas Velmet, Teater. Muusika. Kino, August-September 2010).

Concert is produced by ERSO
