Baltic, Nordic Classical Radio Stations Air Joint Concert Program ({{commentsTotal}})


Tonight the European Broadcasting Union presents a special live program from eight Nordic and Baltic classical music radio stations, including ERR's Klassikaraadio.

This time centering on the theme "Stories of the Sea," the annual program features live performances from studios in Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Iceland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.

Starting at 21:05, listeners in all the EBU countries can tune in at Klassikaraadio.

It all begins with a performance by the "Allegria" chamber orchestra at the Norwegian studio. That will be followed by the Latvian National Orchestra, conducted by Olari Elts, and choir music by Jaakko Mäntyjärvi from the Helsinki studio.

The Estonian portion of the program will be given by the National Men's Choir, performing works by Gavin Bryars and Veljo Tormis, and conducted by Mikk Üleoja.

After that, Lithuania will broadcast part of an opera by Eduardas Balsys; the Swedish concert begins with Mirjam Tally, an Estonian composer living in Gotland; the Danish studio presents Percy Grainger's "Scandinavian Suite"; and young Icelandic musicians will wrap up the show.

The event marks 20 years of cooperation between the Nordic and Baltic radio stations, which produce joint concerts several times each year.
