During Christmas, a rare and fragile glass world will open in Tallinn – for the first time the glass instruments made by Estonian glass artists and the students of glass art from the Estonian Academy of Arts will reach the stage.
“World of Glass” introduces the audience more than 30 fantasy instruments made of glass and the musicians will give two unique concerts with these instruments. Fairy-tale rhythm patterns and meditative melodies will be created on two nights by the most interesting representatives of Norwegian improvisational music: trumpeter Arve Henriksen and percussion virtuoso Terje Isungset.
The partners of this event are the Estonian Academy of Arts, The Royal Norwegian Embassy, Klassikaraadio.
“Klaasimaailm” is one of the events that will end the year of the European Capital of Culture 2011 Tallinn. For more information, visit www.tallinn2011.ee/klaasimaailm
