London-based Slovene flautist Boris Bizjak has established himself as a virtuoso musician who loves improvisation. Alongside the standard repertoire, he specialises in Baroque music played on period instruments. He graduated from the École Normale de Musique in Paris in the class of the famous French concert flautist Pierre-Yves Artaud. He is known to European, American, Japanese and Chinese concertgoers for his captivating performances characterised by breadth of perception and a charismatic stage presence. He will appear in his home country with one of the most in-demand Estonian chamber ensembles, the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, founded in 1993 by the famous Estonian conductor Tõnu Kaljuste. Over the past three decades the TCO has become one of Estonia’s signature orchestras and is a welcome guest of prestigious concert venues and festivals in Europe and all over the world. Its members are established Estonian soloists and chamber musicians. It enjoys a long-standing collaboration with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, with which it has made a number of highly regarded recordings, including several albums featuring works by Arvo Pärt, one of which won a Grammy Award. This season Tõnu Kaljuste has become the orchestra’s principal conductor again after a gap of 18 years.
