The Kristjan Järvi Sound Experience offers the audience a completely different and new approach to having a personal and emotional experience in a concert. This engaging participation connects to the here and now, bringing together ideas, people, emotions, cultures and nature through the universal language of music. With the spiritual power of music, we celebrate the beauty of life and give way to exploring the new possibilities and frontiers for humanity.
The specially designed conceptual programs build a bridge between the great heritage of traditional repertoire, the pop culture of the past with a fresh representation of current global music developments. In these bold approaches there is no limit to any repertoire or musical genre. All projects and the concert experience are carried by the conviction of musical power to communicate and connect people from all over the world on multiple levels.
The “KJ Sound Experience” therefore offers the most possibilities and myriad of concepts to enhance the experience of the program. These include exhibitions, film/multimedia, panels or support of innovative start-ups to generate a limitless platform for intercultural exchanges and awareness. Kristjan Järvi has developed and initiated these extensive concepts with his Absolute Ensemble from New York, the MDR Leipzig Radio Orchestra and above all with the new energetic young touring Orchestra, the Baltic Sea Philharmonic. This trailblazing and extraordinary orchestra functions and aims to become the new role model for the modern orchestra, deeply connected to the musical and emotional needs of our world´s modern society.
The Baltic Sea Philharmonic hereby not only represents the Baltic Sea Region but it ties cultural roots with its nature, culture, entrepreneurial developments, history and future. Most of all it is a shinning working example of intercultural fusion. (For more information on the BSP go here link to BS)

THE KRISTJAN JÄRVI SOUND PROJECT
This original recording series presents the charismatic conductor’s extensive classical, world music and jazz collaborations, while capturing the essence of this vibrant and original musical personality.
The Kristjan Järvi Sound Project spans Järvi’s prolific musical output with an ambitious release schedule over several years. Recordings reflect all of Kristjan Järvi’s activities, from Music Director of MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Gstaad Festival Orchestra, to the Baltic Sea Youth Philharmonic (BYP) and his acclaimed classical-world-hip- hop-jazz group, Absolute Ensemble. The series also showcases Järvi’s collaborations with some of the world’s top artists and composers, including Steve Reich und Arvo Pärt.
As a creative force on today’s music scene, Järvi is known for his innovative classical music programmes and instinctive vision for cross-genre collaborations. The first release on the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project is Balkan Fever, a heady blend of folk-infused orchestral music from the Balkans with western jazz beats. Järvi’s passion for classical music combines with a truly 21st century attitude that cuts across musical and geographical borders.
Further releases on the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project range from works by Richard Strauss, Duke Ellington, Arvo Pärt and Steve Reich (all with MDR LRSO), to Baltic Sea Voyage (BYP) and Forgotten Peoples (Absolute Ensemble).
