In cooperation with an Italian partner festival Festival della Valle d’Itria an arrangement of Luigi Rossi’s opera “L’Orfeo” by Italian composres Daniela Terranova and Fabio Ceresa was brought to stage in the context of VIII Tallinn Chamber Festival (2012).

PLMF started a project called “Emerging classical talent in the EU” in the context of the European culture program. In cooperation with partners from Sweden, Italy and Great Britain three grandiose concerts were prepared and presented in all aforementioned countries. Four musicians were included in the project from Estonia – soprano Pille Lill, cellist Andreas Lend, flutist Oksana Sinkova and saxophonist Virgo Veldi. From Estonian composers the program included a piece called “Prayer” by Galina Grigorjeva for saxophone and string orchestra. The project took place in 2013/2014. Since the year 2014 was announced as the Year of the Brain in Europe then the projects goal in addition to the international cooperation of musicians and composers was to direct attention to the positive effect of classical music to the human brain.

In the spring of 2015 PLMF organized a presenting concert and contact event for over 50 classical music key people who took part of IAMA’s (International Artist Managers’ Association) yearly conference which took place in Helsinki. Four years of experience gained from organizing discussion panels during Tallinn Music Week about presenting classical artists and classical music in general paved the way for this event.

In the summer of 2016 PLMF was a host for the YOA Orchestra of the Americas in Estonia which was led by top conductors of the world Carlos Miguel Prieto (Mexico) and Benjamin Zander (UK/USA). One of the most famous cellists of the world Gautier Capuçon and also an acknowledged violinist Alexandra Soumm from France were soloists in front of the orchestra. PLMF organized a two week residency for YOA in Tallinn and held a total of 6 concerts in Tallinn, Tartu and Rapla County. Also a tour was organized in the Baltics and Poland. Many Estonian young and top musicians took part of the cooperation project.

In 2018-2020 PLMF cooperated with Creative Europe in the project “The Bridge”. Other partners: Scottish Ensemble (UK, coordinator), Trondheim Soloists (NO) and Ensemble Resonanz (DE). The project brought the Summer Academy for string instruments to Estonia and will let 4 young and talented string instrumentalists perform at the Glasgow Festival in Scotland.
