The epic murmur of sagas is sweeping through the great nave of Orsay! Paavo Järvi returns to the Orchestre de Paris, of which he was musical director, for a program devoted to two major composers of Scandinavian music, the Norwegian Edvard Grieg with his famous Peer Gynt, and the Dane Carl Nielsen.

Born in Estonia to a dynasty of musicians involved in the anti-Soviet resistance and close friends of the composer Arvo Pärt, Paavo Järvi is particularly coveted by the major international symphony orchestras for his interpretations of the German, Russian and Nordic romantic repertoire. Music director of the Orchestre de Paris between 2010 and 2016, he has maintained a very close relationship with this group, one to which the colorful, swirling and lyrical works programmed this evening will testify.
