LNSO SUMMER FESTIVAL 2016 took place in Cēsis from 26th to 28th of August


The orchestra has its own holiday house. It is hot in the sun and in the whirlwind of summer events. Partying friends, festivals, sleepless nights, mellow mornings. It is nice, cool, calm on the porch of the holiday house behind its windows of colored glass. Summer is on the point of becoming Indian summer.

You have the wide panorama of Vidzeme in from of you, layer upon layer of forests up to the horizon. There is gold, high in the sky, and in few weeks it will start to appear in the leaves of trees. You look at the old grandfather clock. Soon, the concert will start.

Incredible performance by Karen Vourc’h in Poulenc’s opera “Human Voice”, fantastic piano solo in Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, impressive tension in Vasks’ Violin concerto “Distant Light” performed by Magdalena Geka – these are just some highlights of 2nd LNSO Summer festival. Three days filled with great music in wonderful Cēsis concerthall.
