Grammy-award winning Paavo Järvi has built a remarkable conducting reputation. Born in Tallinn, Estonia, he studied percussion and conducting at the Tallinn School of Music then, in 1980, moved to the USA where he continued his studies at the Curtis Institute of Music and at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute, with Leonard Bernstein.
In addition to his numerous permanent positions, Paavo Järvi is in much demand as a guest conductor appearing regularly with orchestras such as Chicago Symphony, Los Angeles, New York Philharmonic, Boston, Staatskapelle Dresden, La Scala and NHK Symphony.
