To celebrate the lifting of audience restrictions due to the coronavirus, Tallinn Chamber Orchestra and conductor Tõnu Kaljuste performed 10 concerts in Estonia's churches. The tour with Haydn and Estonian composer Arvo Pärt's creations ended on August 15 in Tallinn's Jaan Church.
Haydn's symphony alternated with Pärt's, and Pärt's "Orient & Occident", "Mein Weg", Trisagion" and "Ukuaru valss" were performed.
The Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, founded in 1993, is the only permanent string orchestra in Estonia.
The orchestra consists of string players who also regularly perform as soloists and chamber musicians.
The founder and artistic director of the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra is Tõnu Kaljuste. Leho Karin (cello) and Marrit Gerretz-Traksmann (piano) performed as soloists at the "Arrival Symphony" concert.
