The Järvi Sessions opening event of will take place at the Arvo Pärt Centre on 2 October at 5 p.m. World-renowned conductors Neeme and Kristjan Järvi will share their experience of conducting, creative work and management.

At the opening event, Maestro Neeme Järvi and Kristjan Järvi, will give a concert-talk titled Music as a Source of Enlightenment, with the participation of Prezioso String Quartet. The topics that will be covered are conducting, leading and connecting people, and creating an environment needed for the manifestation of creative abilities. Music will certainly also be part of the conversation as a force and source that unites these topics.

Neeme Järvi: “Conducting is not only about knowing and interpreting the score, it is also about telling a story through your emotions and music. This is creation, life itself.”

Kristjan Järvi: “Music can trigger an unconscious mechanism that has all the answers“.

Music that will be performed will include Arvo Pärt’s “Da pacem Domine” for string quartet (2006) and Jaan Rääts’ Concerto for Chamber Orchestra No. 1 op. 16 (arranged by Mihkel Kerem, a student of Rääts’) and Heino Eller’s “Kodumaine viis”, all performed by Prezioso String Quartet.: Hanna-Liis Nahkur (violin), Mari-Katrina Suss (violin), Helena Altmanis (viola) and Andreas Lend (cello).

The Järvi Sessions’ opening event will be streamed live at stream.arvopart.ee
