Baltic Sea Philharmonic

The Baltic Sea Philharmonic is a new orchestra founded in 2008 by the finest musicians of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Russia and Sweden. Their chief conductor is the youngest member of Estonia's world-renowned conducting dynasty: born in 1972 and raised in the United States, Kristjan Järvi's stock-in-trade within the international world of conductors is extraordinary energy, an easy looseness and nearly magnetic evocativeness, which turn the concerts he conducts into remarkable and scintillating experiences.
