ULTIMATE CLASSICS. BAIBA SKRIDE AND TCHAIKOVSKY’S SIXTH

Skride_kvadr

At last, Karol Szymanowski’s Violin Concerto No. 2 will be performed in Riga again. It is a fragile, lustrous and exquisitely moving piece; violin solo by Baiba Skride, who is possibly the best interpreter of Szymanowski’s scores. We will also hear a dazzling piece by Stravinsky, written during his study years, lustrously depicting everyday life in a beehive. In part two, we will succumb to Tchaikovsky’s fatal magnum opus, which he wrote at the end of his life.
