Estonian Music Days

Music written by Estonian composers has found admirers all over the world. Estonian Music Days will introduce this music to locals and visitors to Estonia alike. The 2011 festival will focus on Tallinn’s districts, with composers spending time living in different parts of the city and writing pieces inspired by those particular areas.

The festival will provide an overview of the current state of Estonian music, and the participating composers will create a joint portrait of Tallinn. One composer and one group from the capitals of each of Estonia’s four neighbouring countries – Helsinki, Riga, Stockholm and Moscow – are being invited to Tallinn, bringing with them their own music and taking some local musical souvenirs away with them when they return home.
