Tallinn, Estonia

Read "Musica Selecta: A Sequence by Manfred Eicher" reviewed by John Kelman

Baltic Mood! Nuovi suoni dall’Estonia

Read "Baltic Mood! Nuovi suoni dall’Estonia" reviewed by Enrico Bettinello

Nazione piccola--nemmeno un milione e mezzo di abitanti--ma ricca di talento musicale, l'Estonia.
I nomi più famosi sono certamente quelli di Arvo Pärt o del direttore d'orchestra Neeme Järvi, ma anche altri compositori percorrono con originalità le strade della scrittura contemporanea.
