Latvian Symphonic Music Grand Concert

LNSO_logo_NEG_2

In the annual LNSO grand concert of Latvian symphony music, you will hear works by Pēteris Plakidis, celebrating his 70th birthday in 2017, and Gundega Šmite, a former student of Plakidis, living in Greece and celebrating her 40th birthday this year. Plakidis’s wonderful Canto (1986) is a symphony classic, and Šmite’s new work is a colourful concerto, woven with Grecian dance rhythms, written for an instrument that has so far been all but neglected by Latvian composers.

 

Liepāja Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Atvars Lakstīgala and Latvian National Opera and Ballet Orchestra under the lead of Mārtiņš Ozoliņš will participate in this concert.

Concert organized by Latvijas Koncerti.
