Maastricht’s 3-day Dutch Dance Festival honours, encourages and promotes the development of Dutch dance, and influences its form in doing so. It selects the most striking of what is currently on offer, initiates co-productions that accelerate and bring contemporary developments to fruition, and is ambitiously planned to develop a layered reciprocity between performances and audience. The festival is held on the first weekend in October in theatres around the city, as well as shops and streets.
Euro Chamber Music Festival (ECMF) is the largest international festival of chamber music in northern Poland attracting renowned artists such as Leszek Mozdzer, Lars Danielsson, Apollon Musagete Quartett, Jean-Marc Fessard, Bartosz Koziak and MozART group. As well as featuring established musicians and premieres, ECMF promotes gifted up-and-coming artists through its unique Baltic String Duo Competition and Baltic Music Workshops. ECMF was founded in 2012 by Duo del Gesu - Christoph Tymendorf (violist) and Arnaud Kaminski (violinist) on the occasion of the EURO 2012.
