On the program will also music by Estonian composers, Molitva by Galina Grigorjeva and Arbos by Arvo Pärt.

„The Emerging Classical Talent in the EU“  project brings together professional musicians from 4 partner countries including Estonia, Sweden, Italy and Great Britain. The first concerts of the project took place in July 2014 at Rapla Church Music Festival in Estonia and Festival della Valle d'Itria in Iltaly and will continue in October.  The Ect-EU will also give attention to the European Year of the Brain. Biomedical researchers have found that music (especially classical) is a highly structured auditory language involving complex perception, cognition, and motor control in the brain, and thus it can effectively be used to retrain and reeducate the injured brain. In addition research has shown clearly that music learning changes the brains auditory and motor areas, which by doing so grow larger and interact more efficiently.
