ESTONIAN SINFONIETTA is an orchestra connecting creatively active musicians who have played together for years and performed in the known European concert halls like Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Philharmonics of Cologne and St Petersburg, Flagey and Bozar of Brussels as well as at many festivals - Ars Musica in Belgium, Festival Internazionale Pianistico di Brescia e Bergamo, Mittelfest and Festival Emilia Romagna in Italy, Iitti Music Festival in Finland and Musikfest Kreuth am Tegernsee in Germany.
Performing together has taken the musicians to tours in Europe (Switzerland, Austria, Grece, Turkey), South-America (Brasil, Argentine, Chile, Uruguay, Peru), Middle East and also to many Estonian music festivals and concert series.
Estonian Sinfonietta’s configuration of instruments is responsive to its repertoire.
Therefore the orchestra forms a flexible ensemble which is able to interpret music from baroque era to contemporary compositions. Also to perform large symphonic pieces and take part in opera projects.
This enables Estonian Sinfonietta to play substantial part of the world’s musical heritage.
Estonian Sinfonietta does not have a main conductor or an artistic director as the music is interpreted together within the group.
Estonian Sinfonietta invites conductors to join the group as needed and on the basis of the repertoire.
The concert masters of the orchestra are Maano Männi and Arvo Leibur.
For its performances the Estonian Sinfonietta partners up with experienced visionaries-soloists and together with them creates interpretation of music with its own soundscape and expressions that appeal to the contemporary listener.
