LNSO SEASON CLOSING CONCERT. CONGENERS CHICHON AND SHIMKUS

Noslegums_kvadr

Vestards Šimkus resumes his successful alliance with the maestro and performs solo in Debussy’s Fantaisie, which is, first and foremost, fragrance and dance. We eagerly anticipate Andris Dzenītis’ Langsam, which was first performed in Saarbrücken in autumn, 2016, conducted by maestro Chichon. “This music gradually brings us towards the light,” says the composer.

In part two, you’ll behold Strauss’ portrait of Don Juan, and his musings on the life beyond (after) will inspire contemplation. Above all – the LNSO reunites with orchestra’s former music director, audience’s favourite Karel Mark Chichon.

Before the concert at 18.18 in the Great Guild Münster Hall LNSO editor Orests Silabriedis will lead the Pre-concert Talk. Free entrance on presentation of the concert ticket.
