Music Director: Nordic Symphony Orchestra
Highlights of the current season include debuts with the Ensemble Modern and the Konzerthausorchester Berlin as well as a new production of La Bayadère at the Royal Danish Opera in Copenhagen. She returns to the Sarasota Orchestra and the Münchner Rundfunkorchester, as well as the Malmö, Trondheim and Nordic symphony orchestras.
Constantly searching for fresh musical ideas, the young Estonian recently performed Goebbels’ Songs of Wars I Have Seen with several ensembles including the London Sinfonietta at New York’s Lincoln Center and London’s Southbank Centre.
Past seasons have included appearances with the Japan and Tokyo Philharmonic orchestras, the Orchestre Philharmonique de Strasbourg, Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias, Mozarteumorchester Salzburg at the Salzburger Festspiele, Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Equally adept in opera, Tali conducted a new production of Gluck’s Telemaco at the Schwetzingen Festspiele and Basel Theatre in 2011.
“The young Estonian Anu Tali… showed excellent command.” (The New York Times, January 2009)
“Anu Tali, the impressive Estonian conductor, showed her creative power particularly in Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9. She modelled the sound of the orchestra with relish, determined and accurate: she formed the music exactly following her imagination. Her powerful and effective movements passed on immediately to the musicians, whose joy of playing was apparent in every second.” (Frankfurter Neue Presse, October 2007)
