LNSO SEASON CLOSING CONCERT

Noslegums_kvadr

The Wagner Hall in Riga is unkempt and fast asleep waiting for a prince to awaken her. Meanwhile, Wagner shows up at the Opera or sometimes even in concert halls. In spring 2017, he will listen to the LNSO at the Great Guild Hall in their final concert of the winter season. They will play the joyous overture of Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg and the Wesendock Lieder – beautiful and full of longing, with a solo by temperamental vocalist Aga Mikolaj. In par two, we will hear Symphony No. 5, one of the best works by Jānis Ivanovs. During Soviet times, this piece earned the great composer the reputation of being a formalist, hazardous to the Soviet everyman.
