A living memorial to the European historical musical heritage

WHAT? – THE EVENT

A celebration of more than a millennium of music, through concerts, events, and happenings taking place simultaneously across Europe, the REMA European Day of Early Music is an official day for early music and a focal point for the promotion of the historical musical heritage in Europe. The first edition in 2013 took place under the patronage of Mrs Androulla Vassiliou, member of the European Commission, while the second edition in 2014 was supported by UNESCO.

WHY? – A LIVING HERITAGE

Early music is a central part of the cultural heritage shared by Europeans, closely connected with other artistic expressions such as dance, theatre, and architecture. It spans more than 1000 years of music, written down or transmitted by oral tradition, from the Middle Ages to the end of the 18th century. While some of the composers of these eras, for instance Johann Sebastian Bach, Claudio Monteverdi, or Hildegard von Bingen, are widely known, there is a large repertoire still to be rediscovered by today’s audiences. The European Day of Early Music aims to increase awareness of the music from the medieval, renaissance and baroque periods and bring it to the attention of a wider audience.

WHEN? – FOCUS ON EARLY MUSIC

The REMA European Day of Early Music is held every year on 21st March, a day celebrating the beginning of spring, and one of Early Music’s most important composers Johann Sebastian Bach (born on 21st March 1685, according to the Julian Calendar).

WHERE? - THE HISTORICAL CONTINENT

During the European Day of Early Music, events will take place across Europe, creating and encouraging collaboration, and connecting initiatives on a national level in a joint European manifestation that will highlight simultaneously local distinguishing features and the common ground of the continent’s musical history.

WHO? – COORDINATOR AND COLLABORATORS

The official promoter and coordinator of the European Day of Early Music is the REMA network, which currently includes over 65 early music festivals and concert venues in 20 European countries. The network and its members will organise concerts, conferences, and other events under the European Day of Early Music heading, but REMA will also collaborate with other organisations and partners, involving intiatives by organisers on local, regional and national levels.

REMA is supported by:

  • The European Commission through the Creative Europe programme
  • The Direction Générale de la Création Artistique of the French Culture Ministry.

PARTNERSHIPS – MEDIA A strong partnership with the media is essential to the impact and visibility of the REMA European Day of Early Music. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) is a partner of the project on the European level. Partnerships between REMA members/other organisers involved in the project and local, regional and national media in each country complement the European aspect.
