»Paavo Järvi and The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen are currently the most successful combination of conductor and orchestra.«
Sachio Moroishi, Disk Selektion, Japan
A very special relationship
Paavo Järvi and The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen are united by the language of music and a desire to continually develop and improve. The Grammy Award-winning Estonian-American conductor has been the Artistic Director of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen since 2004, during which time this brilliant combination of conductor and orchestra has captivated audiences with its powerful yet nuanced interpretations of classical compositions. Paavo Järvi’s passion for detail and meticulous analysis of musical works and their composers is reflected in the orchestra’s distinctive approach, creating a collaborative relationship that is characterized by energy and vitality.
With Paavo Järvi, one of the most sought-after conductors of his generation, The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen has recorded works by Igor Stravinsky and Richard Strauss, among others, achieving its greatest success to date with the works of Ludwig van Beethoven. The recordings of Beethoven’s nine symphonies – for which Paavo Järvi received the 2010 ECHO Klassik Conductor of the Year award – and the orchestra’s live performances of the complete Beethoven symphony cycle in Yokohama, Lanaudière, Paris, Strasbourg, Warsaw, Bonn and Salzburg have received the highest public and critical acclaim.
»The Kammerphilharmonie has me for as long as it wants me.«
His Schumann Project with The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen was as successful as the Beethoven Project. Immediately after its release in November 2011, the first CD of the Schumann cycle with Paavo Järvi was named ›CD of the Week‹ by NDR Kultur. »Once again, Bremen’s dream team under Järvi has done a magnificent job. In Schumann as well, The Kammerphilharmonie cannot be beat.« The French music magazine Diapason confers its Diapason D’Or on The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen’s recording of Symphony No. 4 by Robert Schumann.
Together with The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen Paavo Järvi is now working on the Brahms Cycle.

Other key positions were with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra. In addition to his role as Artistic Director of The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Paavo Järvi is currently the Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris and Chief conductor of NHK Symphony Orchestra. Artistic Advisor to the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. He is also Artistic Adviser to the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and Järvi Summer Festival in Pärnu.
