The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra (Eesti Riiklik Sümfooniaorkester) started out
in 1926 as a small radio orchestra. Over the years, it has become the most prominent
orchestral ambassador of Estonia abroad, powerfully increasing its international scope
particularly in recent decades. Since 2010, its Principal Conductor and Artistic Director has
been Neeme Järvi, who had served as its Principal Conductor also from 1963 until 1979. The
Orchestra performs with renowned conductors and soloists from around the world, including
of course Estonian musicians of the front rank. Its CDs demonstrate a quality that has been
recognised by several renowned music magazines and have 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 undertaken more than fifty concert tours, most notably long
tours of Italy in 2003, the USA in 2009 and 2013, and China 2016. In addition, ENSO has
regularly given concerts in European and Scandinavian countries, appearing at many
prestigious festivals in New York, Köln, Verona, Genova, Munich, Stockholm, etc.
