Paavo Järvi conducts the Estonian Festival Orchestra at the Jurmala Festival, with soloist Ksenija Sidorova, performing a programme of works by Erkki-Sven Tüür and Dmitri Shostakovich.
The EFO goes on its first foreign tour in August 2017 giving concerts at festivals in Jurmala, Turku, Copenhagen and Stockholm.
Over the years of its existence the EFO has gained much acclaim from an Estonian audience, but until now it has performed only at the Pärnu Music Festival. Its first performances outside Estonia will bring the orchestra to Scandinavia's most prominent summer festivals.
