The Erkki-Sven Tüür Information Archive and Homepage

Latest update: January 30, 2005

These pages on the Estonian composer Erkki-Sven Tüür are written and maintained by Alan Teder in Toronto, Canada. This work was inspired by that of Doug Maskew at the Arvo Pärt Works List and Discography (also at Dave Lampson's Classical Net) and that of David Pinkerton at the Arvo Pärt Information Archive. In addition, Doug Maskew has kindly provided me with copies of his pages at the BBC Intranet site for Arvo Pärt and granted permission for the use of portions of his html coding for this present site. The Erkki-Sven Tüür Information Archive is now also available via domain name registration under the new name of Projects to come online in late 2002/early 2003 include the composer website The Veljo Tormis Information Archive and Homepage at and the conductor website The Tõnu Kaljuste Information Archive and Homepage at Please keep checking back for updates.
