Born in Tallinn, Estonia, Paavo is a Grammy award-winning conductor who has worked with orchestras all over the world – most notably in Germany and the United States. He’s currently Chief Conductor of the Tonhalle Orchester-Zürich and NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo, Artistic Director of Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie in Bremen, and the Estonian Festival Orchestra based in Pärnu. Paavo talks to Joe Lynam about how Estonia’s rich musical tradition shaped him and how that Grammy win brought him to the attention of a global audience.
