Neeme Järvi was born in the Estonian capital of Tallinn in 1937, and after studying music there, he studied under the tutelage of Evgeny Mravinsky at the Leningrad Conservatory. From 1963 to 1979, he held the position of Principal Conductor of the Estonian Radio Symphony Orchestra (presently the Estonian State Symphony Orchestra). In 1971, he won the International Conductors Competition at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome, after which he became known internationally. From 1982 to 2004, he was Principal Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, while serving as Principal Conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra from 1984 to 1988, and Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra from 1990 to 2005. He then assumed the positions of Music Director of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Chief Conductor of the Residentie Orchestra of The Hague and Artistic and Music Director of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande. In 2010, he reunited with the Estonian State Symphony Orchestra as its Music Director. He first worked with the NHK Symphony Orchestra in its November subscription concert in 2011.
