Estonian Composers Union

Estonian Composers Union (ECU) is a creative union, associating Estonian professional composers and musicologists. ECU aims for free development and distribution of Estonian music and musicology, protecting freedom of creative freedom and ECU’s members interests.

The head of the Estonian Composers Union is Märt-Matis Lill and the union has currently 120 members.

Since 2005 Estonian Composers Union is a member of the International Society of Contemporary Music (ISCM).

The Estonian Composers’ Union owns grave sites in the Forest Cemetery, which are reserved for members of the Estonian Composers’ Union and their spouses. The Estonian Composers’ Association generally does not allocate grave sites to third parties. Exceptionally, musicians who are not members of the Composers’ Union and who have made a significant contribution to the promotion of the work of members of the Estonian Composers’ Union are buried in the composers’ grave site. Making such an exception is considered by the board of the Estonian Composers’ Union on the basis of an application.
