In 2019 the Composers Unions of all three Baltic States have joined together in a Baltic Contemporary Music Network that aims to cooperate between the states and promote the Baltic contemporary music abroad. In April and May 2021, the First Baltic Music Days will take place in Tallinn and Tartu. On the eve of this event, we invite Estonian and Lithuanian contemporary music ensembles to perform the music of composers from all three Baltic States.
Ensemble U: is currently the most active and renowned contemporary music ensemble in Estonia. It has gained recognition for its ability to perform even the most demanding works without conductor, openness for bold experimental ideas and sensitivity for sound. Next to Estonia U: has performed in important international festivals like Time of Music (Viitasaari, Finland), GAIDA (Vilnius, Lithuania), Sounds New (Canterbury, UK), Nordic Music Days (Helsinki, Finland), Nuova Consonanza (Rome, Italy), Third Practice (Richmond, USA) , Biennale di Musica Venezia (Italy), Virtuosi of XXI Century (Recife, Brazil), Dark Music Days (Iceland).
