Estonian-born conductor Neeme Jarvi turns 74 in a few weeks but shows no signs of slowing down. He had some serious health issues a few years ago but seems to have made a complete recovery. He now heads the Hague Residentie Orkest in Holland and the Estonian National Symphony, and guest conducts all over the world.
One of his former orchestras is the Gothenburg Symphony in Sweden and he has maintained a close relationship with that orchestra over the years. This video shows him in rehearsal with this orchestra and in conversation. For more on Neeme Jarvi visit his website at www.neemejarvi.ee
