Estonian Sinfonietta is an orchestra connecting creatively active musicians, who have played together over 10 years and performed in the most prestigious European concert halls like Golden Hall of Musikverein and Konzerthaus in Vienna, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Philharmonics of Cologne and St Petersburg, Flagey and Bozar of Brussels as well as at many festivals - Ars Musica in Belgium, Festival Emilia Romagna and Carniarmonie in Italy, Musikfest Kreuth am Tegernsee in Germany among others. Performing together has taken the musicians to tours in Europe, South-America and Middle East, in addition to many Estonian music festivals and concert series.

Estonian Sinfonietta’s configuration depends on it’s repertoire. Therefore, the orchestra forms a flexible ensemble, which enables to play substantial part of the world’s musical heritage from different eras, performing symphonic pieces and take part in opera projects.

Presenting Estonian music and artists to the world, holds great value to the orchestra. In addition to performing with guest-soloists, giving constant opportunities to our own members to play as soloists is a high priority for the Estonian Sinfonietta and is taken into account when creating programs for the concerts. Estonian Sinfonietta focus is on creation a performance of music with an unique soundscape that appeals to the contemporary listener.

Because the Estonian Sinfonietta is relatively small, up to 45 members sinfonietta-size orchestra, and because many of its members have played together for a long time, the ensemble often performs without a conductor.
Performed with the Principal taking leadership responsibility within the ranks, as it were, such concerts highlight the personal skills of each musician and the essential chamber music nature of musical performance.

Not all works can be performed without a conductor, so each such program is carefully considered with regard to many different aspects of music. The Estonian Sinfonietta has developed conductor-less performing into an important format alongside other types of performance.

Principal artistic responsibility in the Estonian Sinfonietta rests not with a chief conductor but with the Artistic Board. This administrative model is used by a handful of chamber orchestras around the world. The Board is in charge of repertoire planning and artistic improvement as well as selection the guest conductors and soloists. The Estonian Sinfonietta adopted this model since its beginning.
The Board consists of the orchestra founder, CEO Kaia Lattikas, the concertmaster and two musicians who have played in the Estonian Sinfonietta since the very beginning – the principal of the 2nd violin Valeria Rjumina and percussionist Karl Johann Lattikas.

Estonian Sinfonietta concertmaster starting from June 2023 is Peeter Margus.
