Estonia 10 euro 2014 - Miina Härma

New silver commemorative:

Miina Härma (1864-1941) was a widely recognised Estonian composer. She was the second Estonian musician with higher education.

Her greatest contribution is perhaps the fact that she took organ music to the countryside, as virtually no skilled organists gave concerts outside of towns.
