The Baltic Sea Philharmonic – An Introduction
May we introduce to you: The Baltic Sea Philharmonic! Take a seat and meet our fabulous musicians as well as the leader of the band Kristjan Järvi.
The Baltic Sea Philharmonic – Stravinsky’s The Firebird by heart
There is only one orchestra in the world that performs Stravinsky’s The Firebird without sheet music, entirely from memory – the Baltic Sea Philharmonic together with Kristjan Järvi. Enjoy the trailer of this world premiere with our performance at the Merano Music Festival in 2017.
Waterworks – Spring 2017
In May 2017 the Baltic Sea Philharmonic began its pioneering ‘Waterworks’ tour with a series of concerts in Germany and Denmark. The orchestra will complete its ‘Waterworks’ journey with four more performances in Germany in August. ‘Waterworks’ is a landmark tour for the Baltic Sea Philharmonic. Not only are we celebrating the 80th birthday of Philip Glass by performing two pieces by the great American composer. We are also introducing a thrilling new style of concert presentation, combining music with cutting-edge projection art, lighting and sound design, as well as bespoke performance clothing for our musicians. Check out our latest video for a taste of the ‘Waterworks’ experience!
Baltic Sea Discovery – Fall 2016
Baltic Sea Philharmonic’s ‘Baltic Sea Discovery’ tour in September 2016 took its 75 members 2,000 km, from Klaipėda in Lithuania to Peenemünde in Germany over 14 days. They performed to around 7,000 audience members, selling out their concerts in Lithuania and Germany, and presenting 16 encores. More than a physical journey, the tour offered players and audiences discoveries involving new music and new friendships, as they performed Weinberg’s rarely played Violin Concerto with Lidia Baich and Gidon Kremer. Enjoy highlights of the tour in the video!
Baltic Sea Landscapes – Spring 2016
In April 2016, the Baltic Sea Philharmonic and Kristjan Järvi performed in six cities, crossing nearly 2,000 km during the tour, starting in Klaipeda, Lithuania; travelling to Liepāja (Latvia), Tallinn (Estonia), Helsinki (Finland); then to St. Petersburg, to play at the Mariinsky Concert Hall, on the invitation of Valery Gergiev. The group finished in Moscow on Prokofiev’s 100th birthday, which it celebrated with a special performance of the Third Piano Concerto by Alexander Toradze, a celebrated champion of the composer. See tour highlights in the video!
