A Baltic Quest

Conservatorium Symfonieorkest

The Symphonic Orchestra of Conservatorium Maastricht consists of an international, multicultural group of talented students from all over the world. Students are supported by their teachers, among whom are successful (executive) musicians of international renown. Experience the music, the talent and enjoy the concert! 

The composers of this program all have (had) their roots around the Baltic Sea; Borodin in St. Petersburg, Sibelius in Finland, born in the time that Finland was a Grand Duchy, belonging to Russia, and Pärt in Estonia, when it was still part of Russia. Despite this fact, their music is not at all similar; where Borodin, member of the 'Group of Five', strived to compose in the typical classical Russian style, and Sibelius created a nationalistic Finnish style, separating himself from Russia, Pärt's music is often inspired by Gregorian songs and he created his own minimalistic stlye under the name 'tintinnabuli'. Three extremely different, personal musical styles from a relatively small geographical area.
