Paavo Järvi conducts the Estonian Festival Orchestra at Turku Music Festival, with soloist Lisa Batiashvili, performing works by Carl Nielsen, Piotr Tchaikovski and Dmitri Shostakovich.
The Estonian Festival Orchestra 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 the 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.
EFO performs on 19 August 2017 at 19.00 in Turku concert hall.
