The orchestra of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre presents itself at Young Euro Classic with a programme that focuses on the music of its home country.

International fame has been won by the now 87-year-old Arvo Pärt, whose distinctive musical style is particularly well expressed in his work "If Bach had bred bees".
