Ensemble U: is the most active and renowned contemporary music ensemble in Estonia. The collective boasts a sensitive sound, willingness to experiment with bold new ideas and the ability to perform even the most demanding repertoire without a conductor. U: has performed both in Estonia and at important international festivals abroad. Their repertoire covers the classics of contemporary music as well as experimental compositions. Among other things, the ensemble focuses on performing compositions that require improvisation and irregular interpretation of notation. The ensemble plays Estonian music and also commissions compositions from foreign composers. This time, U: is tackling two tasks at once – one reaching back to the cancelled concert of the Estonian Music Days 2020 and the other involving our Baltic neighbours. Also, the broadcast of the festival will also reach the audience of the GAS festival in Sweden, being part of the GAS festival’s Baltic music program. A double helix indeed!

Live broadcast by EMP TV & Klassikaraadio. The concert will be transferred across Europe through the EBU (European Broadcasting Union).
