Johanna Randvere

Johanna Randvere, Baroque cellist and violist, is one of Estonia’s keenest and most active young Baroque musicians. She began studying the cello at the Võru Music School in 2003, before proceeding to the Tallinn Music High School, the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre and the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, where she is at present working for a Master’s degree in early music under Markku Luolajan-Mikkola. In 2014, she played the cello in the Estonian Opera and Ballet Theatre Orchestra.

An active chamber and orchestral musician, Johanna commands many styles. Her passion for Baroque music has made her in great demand among early music ensembles in Estonia and Finland. She has collaborated with a number of Estonian and Finnish Baroque musicians, such as Markku Luolajan-Mikkola, Matias Häkkinen, Minna Kangas, Annamari Pölhö, Sirkka-Liisa Kaakinen-Pilch, Meelis Orgse, Imbi Tarum and Reinut Tepp. She has appeared at many Estonian music festivals and given recitals in Finland, the Netherlands, Italy and Lebanon.
