The United States of America. On the one hand – Disney, Gershwin, Rogers, Sinatra and others. On another – Salinger, Wilder, Kerouac, Ives and others. We need that America, but then again, the other one too; however the other one often is too little. That’s why on the 27th of November, in the Minster Hall, we will hear music that has been created by a mathematician, Eliot Carter, a campaigner against whaling George Crumb, the sentimental lyricist Samuel Barber, the melancholic sentimentalist Lowell Lieberman as well the Brazilian classic Villa-Lobos who will join the group.
The flautist Irbe Urbāne is a skilled and experienced interpreter of contemporary music, as is the pianist Agnese Egliņa who we know well as a contemporary pianist and a seeker of adventure. At the concert on the 27th of November, we will have a chance to evaluate how the strong and forthright young cellist, Dace Zālīte, blends into this duo.
