With the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival

Oct 13, 2015

The 33-year-old Estonian Risto Joost conducts with tremendous preciseness altough without baton. His body tense from tip to toe, he incites the orchestra to beautifully gentle and explicitly precise cues and blooming sounds. He passed on his positive attitude to the musicians. The five pieces for string orchestra by Estonian composer Heino eller, one of the founders of the Estonian symphony and chamber music, was dominated by the strings.
