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.
