THEATRE EVENT: Sapnis par Brodveju | The Dream of Broadway | Performance Recording, 7:00 PM, Online

img

The musical show, which has experienced a long life and long love from the audience on the stage of the Latvian National Theater, has two different parts, and both have symbolic names. The first – painful and poetic – which can be called “Dita Lūriņa and her Maestro”, because Raimonds Pauls plays a cycle on the piano about the poor girl Kabirija and her nights. And Dita, of course, sings along. The second – energetically powerful and colorfully attractive – can just as safely be called “Dita Lūriņa and her men”, because in the center of it all, of course, is Dita, but next to her all her best Latvian National Theater collegues, who sing and dance around her and alongside her. And there are many of them. Tune in and enjoy the show!

MUSIC EVENT: Concert series live “Symphony CLOSER” – Tchaikovsky’s Fourth, from 7:00 PM, Online

May be an image of one or more people and text

Symphony is one of the most concise, spacious and beautiful forms that humanity provides its message in. The spirit of the era, the advancement of society and deeply personal revelations are simultaneously miraculously manifested in masterpieces that have outlasted their time and become a part of the world’s cultural heritage.

Generations are changing, and the symphony, which the European society has known and loved for more than two hundred years, is slowly shrouded in the dust of oblivion. There are fewer and fewer people who come to concerts with scores. There are fewer and fewer of those who are able to compare dozens of different interpretations of the same symphony and for whom the message of music, history, literature, philosophy, painting and architecture is intertwined in a full and intelligent sense of the world.

Back in the summer, Liepaja Symphony Orchestra, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the State Culture Capital Foundation, started a new series of concert conversations CLOSER (TUVĀK) with the aim of bringing the listener closer to the orchestra’s musicians, by showing them in conversations and music, which, as recognized by music reviewer Orests Silabriedis, sometimes comes with really great surprises. This series has already gained the recognition of listeners with 15 broadcasts and is planned to be continued. The successful example of getting closer to the audience led the orchestra to expanding the range of topics covered, and a new series has been created – Symphony CLOSER, which will introduce the audience to beautiful, classical symphonies which everyone should know.

This time it will be SYMPHONY No.4 by the romantic russian genius PETER TCHAIKOVSKY. The Liepaja Symphony Orchestra will be conducted by professor ANDRIS VECUMNIEKS.
