Contemporary Music

Guntars Greibergs (percussion) and Sinfonietta Riga performing 'Spark' by Platons Buravickis, Oskars Upenieks

The Contemporary Music community is open to EBU radio producers, programmers, commissioners, or presenters involved in any capacity within the contemporary classical music world, including representatives from media ensembles and broadcasters’ contemporary music festivals. It plays an important role in sharing EBU radio organizations’ knowledge about contemporary classical music topics. The aim of the community is to provide a space in which new working relationships can be developed, possibly resulting in new co-commissions, and raising awareness around trends, composers, diversity & inclusion, rights and much more.
