International Modern Music Festival AFEKT 2018

AFEKT Festival, Tartu, Estonia

The International Modern Music Festival AFEKT aims to serve as a platform for the presentation of international repertoires and different co-productions in the Baltic region. At the same time, it has set itself the task of making programs from Central Europe and Scandinavia accessible to the Estonian audience. AFEKT has existed for 14 years now and has become a leading festival of contemporary music in Estonia. In 2018 the festival, under the helm of Monika Mattiesen and featuring programs in Tallinn and Tartu, will also be presented for the first time in Berlin. Supported by the EvS Music Foundation the festival in 2018 presents works by composers such as Helena Tulve, Rebecca Saunders and Helmut Lachenmann. These works – some of which are premieres – will be performed by musicians such as Ensemble Resonanz, Ensemble Mosaik, Ensemblekollektiv Berlin, Ensemble Adapter as well as Alexander Schubert.
