Conductor NEEME JÄRVI
“High-level culture and art is something that Estonia can offer to the world.” (Neeme Järvi).
Neeme Järvi’s cooperation with ENSO began in 1956; in 1960 he became a regular conductor and in 1963 the principal conductor of the Estonian Radio Symphony Orchestra (now Estonian National Symphony Orchestra). Neeme Järvi’s arri-val brought about a considerable improvement and stabilization in the quality of the orchestra’s performance. The repertoire of the orchestra broadened and music was more frequently recorded for Estonian Radio and the Melodiya Record Company. The second half of the 1970s marks the beginning of annual concerts in the Grand Hall of Leningrad Philharmonia and performances and recordings in Moscow. With Neeme Järvi, the orchestra also went on its first foreign tours – in 1972 to Romania and Bulgaria, and in 1976 to Kuwait.
It was at Neeme Järvi’s initiative that the orchestra was re-named the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (ENSO) in 1975.
Neeme Järvi’s reunion with ENSO after his emigration to the US in early 1980 happened in 1993; two years later he took the orchestra with Tobias’ oratorio “Jonah’s Mission” to Gothenburg, Stockholm, Malmö and Helsinki. Since the 2010/2011 season he has again been the artistic director of ENSO. With ENSO, he travelled to St. Petersburg in 2012, on a long tour in the US in 2013, to Riga and Vilnius in 2016. The next stop will be China.
