In the first two years, with more than 100 artists, composers and ensembles NORDLICHTER became an interesting platform for Nordic Music. An important part of the festival is to give appointments to young composers from the Nordic countries and from Berlin to build a strong co-operation and to support the exchange between Berlin and the other participating countries.
This year, on 27 April you can see:
On 26 April there will be "Sounding Apartments" where residents of the city can open their private rooms for little concerts to create a directly exchange between artist and audience. The host invites the audience on his own so it will be private events.
