Nordic Pulse

How do we follow such an ambitious 2017? Well, we certainly have plenty of motivation to make this year our most exciting yet. Not only does 2018 mark the centenary of independence for the Baltic States of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, and just over 100 years since Finland and Poland declared independence. This year is also our tenth anniversary. Yes, it’s nearly a decade since the Baltic Sea Youth Philharmonic, which would later evolve into the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, gave its inaugural concert in Riga in June 2008. We’ll be presenting highlights from our first ten years on our social media channels throughout 2018, so keep an eye on our Facebook page and Instagram feed.

On the concert stage we’ll be celebrating both our tenth anniversary and the independence anniversaries of those great countries of the Baltic Sea region with a special programme called ‘Nordic Pulse’. Drawing on the cream of Nordic composers, from Kalniņš and Sibelius to contemporary stars including Gediminas Gelgotas and our own Kristjan Järvi, ‘Nordic Pulse’ will tour in 2018 with leading young violinist David Nebel as one of our soloists. David will give the world premiere of Gelgotas’s new Violin Concerto in Bad Kissingen, Germany, in July. The European tour of ‘Nordic Pulse’ in September to Italy, Germany and Poland, will see the orchestra again performing entirely from memory: Sibelius ‘The Tempest’ and Kalniņš Rock Symphony 1st mvt.


Soloists of the tour

Joining the orchestra to perform the world premiere of Gelgotas’s Violin Concerto, will be the Swiss Violinist David Nebel, one of the most exciting talents of Switzerland.
