Tallinn Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1993 by conductor Tõnu Kaljuste. In two decades it has become one of Estonia’s signature orchestras and a welcome guest performer on numerous stages in Europe and all over the world. Since autumn 2013 the chief conductor of TCO is Risto Joost. TCO has gained regard for its artistically integral programmes, style-sensitive play and mastery of interpretation, TCO’s musicians are highly rated string players, who also regularly perform as soloists and chamber musicians.

TCO is one of performers on Arvo Pärt’s record “Adam’s Lament”, which won a Grammy in 2014.

Prizewinner of the Malko Conducting Competition 2015 and Jorma Panula Conducting Competition 2012, Risto Joost has gained widespread recognition for his work both in the opera pit and on concert stage. His repertoire ranges from baroque to the most challenging works of contemporary composers. Since 2009 Joost is the conductor in residence of the Estonian National Opera, chief conductor of the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra from 2013, artistic director of the MDR Leipzig Radio Choir from 2015/16 and from spring 2016 artistic director of Tallinn Philharmonic Society and Birgitta Festival. Risto Joost is also performing as a countertenor.
