Notes and Editorial Reviews

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 will reflect all of Kristjan Järvi's activities, from Music Director of MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Gstaad Festival Orchestra, to the Baltic Youth Philharmonic (BYP) and his acclaimed classical-world-hip-hop-jazz group, Absolute Ensemble. As a creative force on today's music scene, Järvi is known for his innovative classical music programmes and instinctive vision for Read more cross-genre collaborations.

The first album on the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project is Balkan Fever. The brainchild of Kristjan Järvi, Balkan Fever features the vibrant colours of folk-influenced orchestral pieces by Enescu and Kodály, with hypnotic sounds, melodies and beats from the Balkans. The album stars a trio of virtuosic Balkan musicians - kaval-player Theodosii Spassov, and guitarists Miroslav Tadic and Vlatko Stefanovski - while the live concert recording captures the highly-charged atmosphere of intoxicating classical-folk-jazz fusion. The result is an electrifying sound experience.
