The Estonian National Symphony Orchestra—only on its second U.S. tour, attracts attention. Recognized with a Grammy for the recordings of Sibelius' cantatas, in 2005 The New York Times named their CD Peer Gynt as "a surprise highlight" of the year and in 2006 it also won the BBC Music Magazine award for best orchestral album. Estonian-born Ainomäe, who performs on an 1897 instrument by Stafano Scarampella, is currently Principal Cellist of the Colorado Symphony.
"Denver is extremely fortunate to have this big talent, [Ainomäe] with his beautiful, burnished sound and agile technique."
—The Denver Post
