With Pieces from Estonia and Russia, Ensemble for New Music Tallinn (ENMT) will be performed the program that includes works of composers from two neighboring countries with much common history, yet with a highly variable, personal and individual sounding. What is sound? How the different composers define, treat or understand it? And how all these questions alongside many other concerns will affect the outcome of music and thus the audience? ENMT is committed on bringing the fresh and less experienced music to a wider audience, with emphasizing the aspects of new music that have not become contaminated by mainstream or institutionalization. The highlight of the program are world premiere of newly written pieces by Estonian composer Märt-Matis Lill, Estonian based Iranian composer Arash Yazdani and young Russian composer Artur Zobnin. These pieces are commissioned by ENMT for this project.
Moreover on the program will be performed pieces of well-known Greek-French composer Iannis Xenakis, Russian composerAlexander Radvilovich and the young emerging composer Jeff Brown . All the pieces in this program have a common and clear motif on sound, however being treated differently.
The concert takes place on Wednesday 3rd of December, at Erarta Museum and Galleries of Contemporary Art in St. Petersburg and is organized by the Saint-Petersburg Contemporary Music Center .
