Paavo Järvi’s family festival in Estonia is now entering its second decade. Alongside the annual Järvi Academy Conducting Masterclasses, the festival features the internationally acclaimed Estonian Festival Orchestra in three concerts with guest soloists Joshua Bell and Emmanuel Pahud. Estonian home-grown talent includes violinist Triin Ruubel and pianist Mihkel Poll and this year’s Estonian composer focus will be dedicated to, Artur Lemba (1885 – 1963), Edouard Tubin (1905 – 1982) and Ülo Krigul (b. 1978).

“There are still a lot of details for this year’s festival yet to be confirmed” says Paavo Järvi, “depending on what is feasible regarding how large an orchestra we can bring together and which members of the Estonian Festival Orchestra will be able to join us from around the world. BUT we can promise 8 days of fantastic concerts in the true Pärnu spirit and a thriving Conducting Academy – now a traditional part of summers in Pärnu.”
