Music from ECM in Estonia

Music from ECM is a central theme of a festival with the headline “Perfect Silence” held in Tallinn, Estonia, this week under the artistic direction of Erkki-Sven Tüür.

The festival opens on February 13 at the Kanuti Gildi Saal with a performance by the NYYD Ensemble, playing a cross section of pieces which have been recorded for ECM New Series including Zelenka’s Trio Sonatas, Bent Sørensen’s “The Lady of Shalott”, Elliott Carter’s Sonata for Flute, Oboe, Cello and Harpsichord, Thomas Larcher’s “IXXU”, and György Kurtág’s “Officium breve”. Erkki-Sven Tüür’s “Confession” for Violin Solo is also on the programme. (The NYYD Ensemble will appear on Estonian composer Helena Tulve’s ECM debut album, “Lijnen”, due in April).

On February 15 at St John’s Church French pianist François Couturier presents his project “Nostalghia – Song for Tarkovsky”, dedicated to the great Russian filmmaker and featuring cellist Anja Lechner, saxophonist Jean-Marc Larché and accordionist Jean-Louis Matinier. Couturier and Matinier also appear the following day, February 16, as part of Tunisian oud master Anouar Brahem’s trio to play material from the recordings “Le pas du chat noir” and “Le voyage de Sahar” at the Mustpeade Maja House.

On February 17, Swiss composer-pianist Nik Bärtsch’s band Ronin close the festival with a performance at Tallin’s Rock Cafe, with music from their new release “Holon”.
