The festival of 2017 is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of Maestro Neeme Järvi.

One of the most important and extraordinary phenomenon of the festival is the Estonian Festival Orchestra with its special composition, which includes the very best in their fields from all over the world.

“Estonian Festival Orchestra has become a world-class orchestra, for which we are attempting to achieve an even and high level of excellence. The festival orchestra is also a kind of a breeding ground – we are involving many young Estonian musicians so that they would develop good contacts with the specialists of the field,” says Paavo Järvi, the artistic director of the festival.

“… these (Pärnu Festival orchestra members) are simply musicians having the time of their lives, big thanks to the inspiring Paavo Järvi himself, and they’re an inspiration, in turn, to the festival youth orchestra, a collection of Estonia’s finest young musical talent who, alternately with the festival orchestra, give some of the week’s most electrifying performances.
Finally, no festival would be complete without its audience, and the people of Pärnu are warm, supportive and appreciative. Paavo Järvi is, it seems, playing to friends – and that is exactly what a festival should be all about.” Oliver Condy (BBC Music Magazine).
