Principal conductor Nikolai Alexeev
From the season 2001/2002 the principal conductor and music director of Estonian National Symphony Orchestra is a renowned performer of St. Petersburg's new school of conductors, Nikolai Alexeev.

About Nikolai Alexeev: After completing the St. Petersburg Conservatory (under the guidance of Arvid and Maris Jansons), Nikolai Alexeev worked with the Maria Theatre in St. Petersburg, and as conductor of the Ulyanovsk Philharmonic Orchestra and the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra. He has directed the leading symphony orchestras in Moscow as well as in St. Petersburg, and has given concerts in Europe, the United States and Japan. Nikolai Alexeev is also principal conductor and artistic director of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra, an associate director with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and since the season 2002/2003 he is the principal guest conductor of Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow. While Alexeev's first experience with the ENSO was as a guest conductor in 1983, the relationship has become a much closer one since 1995. In January 2003 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Nikolai Alexeev's and ENSO's collaboration.
