Erkki-Sven Tüür Future Concerts and Performances

Information on the concert performances of Erkki-Sven Tüür's compositions is more easily obtainable via the internet than ever before, but obviously this archive has to be kept within reasonable limits. The performances below are a listing of world or specific continent or country premieres as well as any other concerts of special significance. If you have the time and inclination to do searches of your local concert organization etc. I will be more than happy to make additional entries. If you have any useful information, contributions or comments you would like to make, you can contact me via e-mail at: alan.teder@sympatico.ca

Where possible, the links below will take you to the promoting/sponsoring arts organization who will have further information on the performance date, location, ticket prices and availability. These will not always be in English, but please remember the translator engines at babel.altavista.com which may be able to provide assistance (and which, as an added bonus, will also provide some comic relief).
