Baltic Music Days + GAS – welcome to our 2021 live-streamed Baltic collaboration!

Baltic Music Days + GAS – welcome to our 2021 live-streamed Baltic collaboration!

On April 25-26th and May 1st we’re presenting three exciting contemporary ensembles from the Baltics in collaboration with Baltic Music Days.

On three separate occasions we will present three exciting contemporary ensembles from the Baltics. Ensemble U: is the most active and renowned contemporary music ensemble in Estonia today. Ensemble Synaesthesis consists of Lithuanian musicians of the younger generation presenting works by experimental composers. And finally, Quadra Piano Quartet, who is one of the fastest rising professional ensembles in Latvia.

The three ensembles will present works by both up-and-coming as well as established contemporary Baltic composers, many of whom are hopefully new to our Swedish audience. With these concerts we hope to shed some light on today’s exciting Baltic contemporary music scene.

The ensembles were initially meant to be part of the Fenoba Conference slated for the 2020 edition of the GAS Festival. But due to the ongoing situation with travel bans and severe restrictions regarding audience capacity, it was just not possible to present them or the conference in Gothenburg at that point. Therefor we are extremely happy to now be able to live stream these concerts by three of the most interesting ensembles in the Baltics today!

In connection to the Baltic Music Days, the Nordic/Baltic festival network Fenoba has also been invited to present the aim and activities of the network during a meeting on May 1st. The Fenoba network was initiated by GAS in 2015 as a means of bridging the gap between a number of Nordic and Baltic festivals. The aim of the network is to arrange network meetings regarding artistic content, artist residence for musicians and composers, workshops in conjunction with residencies, joint productions, commissions and development as well as exchange of productions.
