Having grown into an international group, we especially appreciate our birthplace, Estonia, which is also home to our 122-year-old company. We have focused our support on areas whose cultural significance we consider important for our home market. Liviko has for many years supported the Estonian National Opera, the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, the Art Museum of Estonia and the Estonian Artists Association. Liviko is also proud to have re-initiated and supported the Estonian Writers Union’s best novel competition.
As a gold sponsor of the Estonian Yachting Union, we are helping Estonian sailors take part in the Tokyo Olympic Games. Liviko Cup, a tennis tournament held every summer for more than 10 years, brings together sports fans from all walks of life.
Held annually since 2011, this gala concert is a long-awaited event for opera lovers in Tartu and Tallinn, a meeting place for brilliantly talented musicians. The traditional late summer opera evenings have become an esteemed opening for the music season.
The 2019 gala concert was dedicated to the 180th anniversary of the world-famous Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky. The invaluable musical heritage of the beloved composer has offered musical experiences for many generations, fascinating audiences to this day. Liviko has been a major sponsor of the Estonian National Opera since 2012.
Olari Elts, Chief Conductor of ERSO: “Thanks to Liviko, we’ve been able to invite renowned foreign soloists and conductors to perform here. The long-term and very pleasant cooperation between the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and Liviko has made it possible to offer the Estonian public exquisite music experiences.”
The Liviko series of ERSO piano concerts has been a masterful musical journey in the company of world-class performers and music professionals. Just as masterpieces from many centuries ago continue to be performed at the concert hall, we at Liviko continue to pass on the valuable knowledge and skills we have accumulated over more than a century. This is how a masterpiece comes together.
Vano Allsalu, Vice-President of the Estonian Artists Association: “The cooperation agreement with Liviko gives the Artists Association a professional partner who appreciates art, when presenting the works of Estonian artists. In addition to creative freedom and inspiration, the creators appreciate a curious and mindful audience their works can really speak to. At the same time, the wine selection put together by Liviko’s experts for exhibition openings also shapes a mindful wine culture.”
In 2019, there were 68 exhibitions in the galleries of the Estonian Artists Association, which were visited by 55,037 art lovers.
Ott Kallas, head of the Estonian national sailing team, “The Estonian Olympic Sailing Team aims to rank in the top 10 at the Tokyo Olympics. We’re not alone with our wishes and aspirations. To achieve this goal, the Estonian Yachting Union has signed a gold sponsor agreement with Liviko to support the Olympic preparations of the sailors.”
Ott Kallas, head of the Estonian national sailing team in Tokyo 2021, presents an overview of the athletes who have a chance of success at the Olympic Games, “The Estonian Yachting Union is most hopeful about Karl-Martin Rammo (competing in the Laser Standard class) and Ingrid Puusta (competing in the RS:X class), who have already secured their tickets to the Olympic regatta. Juuso and Henri Roihu (competing in the 49er class), and Deniss Karpak and Taavi Valter Taveter (competing in the Finn class) are also hoping to qualify for the Olympics.”
