Conductor OLARI ELTS

The audience will be shaken by this concert combining electronic and orchestral music conducted by ENSO’s principal guest conductor Olari Elts, who keeps expanding his grasp each year, with critics offering him increasingly higher praise. “The true star of the show, though, was Estonian conductor Olari Elts, who rather magically managed to conjure quite analytical, microscopically detailed performances that still sparkled with spontaneity and fresh, vivid life.” (The Scotsman, 11 May 2015). “He has a charisma that is boyish and ebullient. It certainly came over.” (The Scotsman, 3 December 2014).

Olari Elts: “At this concert, it will be possible to hear and see where the orchestra and all orchestral music is moving in the 21st century. It is not easy to fuse electronic music with orchestral music, but over the past 10–15 years, there have been staggering developments in this area. In this field, Mason Bates is one of the best-known figures in the world, one of the hottest names of the American younger generation. Compared to Bates, John Adams is an old master, but of all American composers, he is undoubtedly the most familiar with orchestras – he really knows what this beast is capable of.”

Afterparty at 21:30 at Theatre NO99
