How to find the EMP TV video view on the website? You can find the EMP TV video window by moving from the front page to the programme view, where every concert introduction includes a “Watch EMP TV” button. This will take you to the concert stream. You can find information about the concert programme by scrolling down in the EMP TV video window. All concerts are recorded and can also be viewed later. During the festival, the EMP TV button on the front page will also provide a direct link to the next concert stream.

All concerts can be watched up to 14 days after the concert and the ticket purchase by clicking “Show past events”.
Create suitable conditions for listening. Find a nice environment to enjoy the music and focus on the concert experience.
Link your device to headphones or soundsystem. EMP TV broadcasts are excellently produced by Klassikaraadio and Kõlavärv OÜ. For the best sound quality use high-quality noise-reducing headphones or a home sound system.
Arrive early. Open the concert window 5–10 minutes before the beginning: make sure to close all unnecessary browser windows and mute notifications that might disturb your concert experience. Browse the concert programme for a deeper engagement.
If the video freezes, check your internet connection. If your Wi-Fi is rather slow, use the internet cable or the 4G connection on your phone. Try refreshing the page. Check a different web page to see if the internet connection works. Our festival is not completely protected from technical errors, but we do our best to provide technically stable quality for the web concerts.
Read the concert programme beforehand. The concerts last about 1–1.5 hours. Klassikaraadio editor will give a brief introduction to each piece and the information will be shown on the screen. Each concert introduction has a link to biographies of composers and performers.
