The orchestra itself was making its debut at the Proms. Its performance was dedicated to the centenary of the first phase of the nation’s quasi-independence from Russian rule – a freedom lost in 1940 and not fully reclaimed until 1991. Paavo Järvi is an Estonian conductor. His family lives in America and he studied at the Curtis Institute of Music and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute.
