Estonia is an international meeting place for the Nordic Symphony Orchestra. In May the orchestra, which the foreign press often compares to a rock group, will perform in Tartu, Jõhvi and Tallinn.
The Nordic Symphony Orchestra (NSO) is an international symphony orchestra founded by Estonian conductor Anu Tali and her twin sister Kadri in 1997. The orchestra was previously called Finnish Symphony Orchestra in order to develop cultural contacts between Estonia and Finland.
NSO has members from fifteen countries. In bringing together musicians from the world`s leading orchestras, the NSO seeks to improve the level of its music-making by blending the best qualities of different instrumental schools and traditions. Orchestra plays both classical and contemporary music to attract the attention of the audience without simplifying the contents of its programs.
These concert series will bring the feelings of spring and romance. The concert program is called “Born special” (Eest. Erilisena Sündinud), and its desire is to expand the view of the world.
The chief conductor Anu Tali says: “Our desire is to make notice, understand, help, contribute and take part in people`s worries and turn them into a personal development with the help of music.”
In the concert you will hear:
- Brahms Academic Festival Overture, op. 80
- Dvořák Cello Concerto
- Schumann Symphony No. 1 “Spring”
Soloist: Adolfo Gutierrez Arenas (cello, Spain)
