Medieval Days. Duo Paulina & Miia (Estonia)

07.07.2024 - 07.07.2024
Location: Niguliste museum. Tallinn
Time: 12:00

Paulina Andrejeva and Miia Polding are students of the kannel class at the Tallinn School of Music and Ballet (MUBA). The concert features classical and contemporary music and original compositions by the musicians, based on folk songs.

The kannel is an ancient Estonian stringed instrument that goes back thousands of years. In the 19th and 20th centuries, diatonic kannels of various shapes and sizes were played across villages.

The Estonian chromatic kannel, however, is a much newer instrument, developed in the early 1950s. The chromatic kannel can be used to perform classical, folk and pop music. With its unique sound and performance opportunities, this instrument has gained the interest of many Estonian and foreign composers.
