ERSO, presented by AUDI: The Maestro concert series
Estonia Concert Hall, Tallinn
This is an oldie but goodie in the sense that the name of the series is a recurring one, but there is a great deal of new this season. The Maestro concert series is a true parade of stars. Conducting for the first time in Estonia are internationally recognized Austrian violinist and conductor Thomas Zehetmair as well as Robert Trevino, a younger generation American conductor who has quickly gained international recognition and will begin his second season as the principal conductor of the Basque National Orchestra. These great names certainly won't be the only ones, so stay tuned!
