CONCERT HALL CĒSIS

LATVIAN NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

Conductor: ANDRIS POGA

Programme:

Sergei Rachmaninoff, Piano Concerto No. 2; Carl Nielsen, Symphony No. 4

The programme of this autumn’s biggest concert of symphonic music will feature one of the most popular musical pieces ever written for the piano: Piano Concerto No. 2 by Sergei Rachmaninoff. In his music, Rachmaninoff is casting his glance across the expanse of Russia. His Second Piano Concerto epitomizes the resurrection of an author experiencing deep creative crisis; radiating beauty, it breathes deeply and rises and falls in majestic waves.
The work by the Danish composer Carl Nielsen presented in Part Two of the concert is similar in its scope. Subtitled ‘The Inextinguishable’, his symphony, written during the First World War, speaks of unfading life force, fundamental will for life and an impetuous vital spirit.

At 18:00
