Legend has it, Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet was so popular that people used to hum its themes on the streets and in trams, and the work was discussed as ardently as the latest football scores. Allusions to Bach; a composer of a relatively young age, yet already embittered by life and intimidated; a gleaming joy of life; Stalin Prize – all these aspects shape the context of this music. The first part of the concert will be a solo performance by Vestards Šimkus – his own sonata Light-years away, a Mozart sonata, and waltzes by Skryabin and Chopin.
20.00 / Saturday / Vidzeme concert hall “Cēsis”
