After a marvellous co-operation on the performance of Lutosławski’s Piano Concerto at the Cēsis Arts Festival in the summer of 2013, Maestro Andris Poga has invited Reinis Zariņš, a pianist living in London for another collaboration.
The concert program includes Ēriks Ešenvalds’ Clouds, a poem about that untouchable substance that glides above our heads, Alexander Scriabin’s Piano Concerto – the young composer’s conversation with his bride shortly before their wedding and long before coming under the power of Prometheus, and Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 as a dialogue with fate, the melancholy of evening and the enjoyment of the joy of strangers.
This concert will be broadcast live by the Radio Latvia 3 Klasika programme across the classical music network of Euroradio member states. It will be the highlight of the special Riga – European Capital of Culture 2014 Week.
