The international Early Music Festival “Orient et Occident” focuses on the Oriental culture and its relations with early European, primarily medieval culture. The goal is to create an artistic whole in which the topics are handled in depth from different viewpoints. A typical feature of this festival is the format of a double concert, with an ensemble from Europe playing during the first part and an ensemble from Asia during the second part, concluded with a final joint improvisation of both ensembles. Tartu Early Music Festival is an interdisciplinary event bringing together concerts, performances, exhibitions, lectures, study sessions and master classes. Among other things, it has always featured the Festival Club with its distinctive ambience. The concerts take place in different locations in Tartu.
