The ring of Latvia

In the framework of the Riga City Festival, concerts of the series “The Ring of Latvia” - a project of Latvia’s Centenary - will be performed once again.

The project is a realisation of conductor Sigvards Kļava’s idea of four conceptually different rings that emphasise and portray the unique characteristics, the richness and the energy of each of the four regions of Latvia, as seen by their local inhabitants.

All performances will take place at the Dailes Theatre.

World Music Days | Tartu

Festival ISCM World Music Days travels to a different country every year. This spring will be its first time in Estonia. On 2 - 10 May, contemporary music will be heard in a number of cities across our neighbouring country. Traditionally, program of the World Music Days consists of compositions selected through a competition, which this year received submissions from over 50 countries, as well as new compositions especially commissioned for the festival.

On the Good Friday, an immensely important time in the Christian world, the Riga Cathedral will echo with music that speaks of the events of the Holy Week and invites to contemplation, strengthens and lets the heart blossom in Easter exultation. The Latvian Radio Choir, Sinfonietta Rīga and its conductor Sigvards Kļava will fill the vaults of the Cathedral with two superb opuses – the local master Juris Karlsons’s Adoratio and the most notable Scottish composer today James MacMillan’s Stabat Mater.
