GLASPERLENSPIEL MUSIC FESTIVAL − a joint project of ERP and the City of Tartu The festival Glasperlenspiel (‘The Glass Bead Game’) directed by Peeter Vähi has got its inspiration from the novel by Hermann Hesse. It is certainly a leading musical event in Estonian summer where music lovers can enjoy attractive performers and programmes.
