About last year, 2013:
The headliner for the 9th edition of the festival in 2013 was the well known Swedish string orchestra Camerata Nordica.
The Festival took place in the historic concert halls and churches in one of the most beautiful cities of the Baltic States with concerts in the Town Hall, Hopner House, St John’s and St Michael's Swedish Church. For the first year the Conductors Academy master class took place alongside the festival.
The festival is supported by the Tallinn City Government, the Ministery of Culture and the Cultural Endowment of Estonia. 2013 was the PLMF jubilee year and we had many great partners to support us throughout the 12 months: the main sponsor - Tallinna Vesi; sponsors - Silmet Group and Sadolin; supporters Piletilevi, Forum Cinemas, Adnet Media and WSI Baltics; media partners TV3 and radio KUKU.
The Festivals founder and artistic director is the Estonian opera singer Pille Lill.
