Estonian Glasperlenspiel Sinfonietta’s birth is related to the ideas of Artistic Director, Andres Mustonen and his yearslong willingness to embrace the music with high emotional level, to give the audience unforgettable memories they are never expected to get from classical music concert. The Glasperlenspiel Sinfonietta’s unique artistic style encompasses not only the masterworks of the classical repertoire, but innovative cross-art form projects and a vigorous commissioning program. The orchestra’s repertoire spanning over centuries, entwines old music with new, from Bach to Tüür, from Corelli to Piazzolla.
