Estonian National Symphony Orchestra

by The Staff on November 6, 2013

 

The Grammy Award-winning Estonian National Symphony Orchestra will come to Troy this Monday evening with a program of majestic works by Sibelius, Tchaikovsky and Estonia’s most acclaimed composer, Veljo Tormis.

The Santa Barbara (Calif.) Independent praised the orchestra for its “inspired and intelligent performance” in Los Angeles last week. Of the same performance, the Los Angeles Times noted the “remarkably cavernous quality of the ERSO’s sound. It is an orchestra that seems absolutely rooted to the Earth.”

Monday’s program will include Overture No. 2 by Veljo Tormis, Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 and Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5.

Troy Chromatic Concerts will present the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra at 7:30 PM Monday (Nov. 11) at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall (2nd and State streets, Troy). Tickets are $55 and $45, with $10 student rush tickets available one hour before the concert. For more info, call 273-0038.
