BC, Tallinn, 16.02.2009.Print version

Republic of Estonia will give an Estonian piano to the European Parliament on the occasion of the republic's 90th anniversary, writes the National Broadcasting/LETA.


The gift is also a final chord for a series of musical presents in the framework of which Estonian top-level musical groups performed new Estonian works in five European countries.


The present will be handed over to the President of the European Parliament Hans-Gert Pöttering by minister of culture Laine Jänes. She stated that the piano is a good symbol for introducing Estonian State in Europe as it is the only country that has pianos named after itself.


Estonia introduced itself with musical presents in Finland, Sweden, Iceland, Britain and in Denmark as all of these countries have a special part in Republic of Estonia becoming independent.
