Klassikaraadio is the largest audience of all continuously operating cultural media-channels in Estonia. Klassikaraadio’s present schedule features cultural programs and news as well as a wide spectrum of quality musics – from West-European classics and contemporary music to folk, jazz, world music. The share of Estonian music in our programme constitutes 20%.

A remarkable part of Klassikaraadio’s programming – 10 hours every week – is taken up by broadcasting live concerts from both Estonian and foreign venues. As regards music events in our homeland, we make approximately 150 live broadcasts every year. Klassikaraadio schedules all concerts performed by the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra and records most of the premieres of Estonian composers’ new works.

Klassikaraadio’s weekly series, Nyyd-muusika (“Music of the Now”), dedicated to different aspects of and developments in the fields of contemporary composition and experimental music, is on the air on Tuesdays at 21:00. Nyyd-muusika covers also the International Rostrum of Composers, featuring the works presented and discussions held at this major forum of new music.
