The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (ERSO) – a vivid and versatile orchestra, always striving towards excellence. The unique position in the intersection of cultures brings together, Western, Nordic and Russian musical traditions. Celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2026, ERSO has become the most prominent musical ambassador of Estonia abroad, powerfully increasing its international scope particularly in recent decades. Since the season 2020/2021, its chief conductor and artistic director is Olari Elts. Neeme Järvi, the longest-serving chief conductor of the ERSO, continues to cooperate with the orchestra as an Honorary Artistic Director for Life, and the artistic adviser of the orchestra is Paavo Järvi. The orchestra performs with renowned conductors and soloists from around the world, including, of course, the most prominent Estonian musicians. ERSO’s CDs demonstrate a quality that has been recognised by several renowned music magazines and the orchestra has won several prizes, including a Grammy Award for the recording of cantatas by Sibelius. Its home venue is the Estonia Concert Hall in Tallinn and it has dazzled the world with numerous tours and participated in reputable international music festivals. They have played in prestigious venues such as the Konzerthaus Berlin, Musikverein in Vienna, Rudolfinum in Prague, Brucknerhaus in Linz, the Avery Fisher Hall in New York, the Grand Hall of Saint Petersburg Philharmonia and the Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre, the Kölner Philharmonie, the Helsinki Music Centre, and many more. /…/


The grand man of Estonian music, Maestro Neeme Järvi – a conductor „from God“ – is probably one of the best-known Estonian musicians in the world. It is almost impossible to fully sum up the long and prolific career of one of the most sought-after conductors of our time. Neeme Järvi has conducted 157 orchestras, held the position of chief conductor (currently chief conductor emeritus) of Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Royal Scottish National Orchestra (currently honorary conductor), music director of Detroit Symphony Orchestra (currently music director emeritus), music director of New Jersey Symphony Orchestra (currently honorary conductor), chief conductor of the Hague Residentie-orchestra (currently chief conductor emeritus), music director of Orchestre de la Suisse Romande etc. The considerable increase in the artistic level of these orchestras has greatly been his service, as has the respect by these orchestras and their ongoing wish to continue their co-operation. His discography is likewise impressive. Among others, he has recorded all symphonies by Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Strauss, Mahler, Dvořák, Glazunov, Sibelius, Nielsen and Brahms. /…/
