    Jubilee Concert of Raimonds Ozols

    Birthday concert of Raimonds Ozols

    Performers: Raimonds Ozols (violin), Mārcis Auziņš (guitar), Raimonds Macats (piano)


    For his birthday, Raimonds Ozols and friends offer a concert programme with special chamber versions by composers of different ages - Niccolò Paganini and Astor Piazzolla. The idea of the concert has been rising for a long time, inspired by a library of musical heritage, the pieces of which have not been heard so often in Latvia.


    Niccolò Paganini's work relates to virtuoso violin play, but the composer has also created marvellous pieces for romantic chamber music: Duetto Amoroso, Grand sonata and Tercetto for violin, guitar and bass, which will be played in this concert. Each piece has its own story of origin, most often related to an intimate moment in the composer's life, echoed in the feelings or events of the hero of this concert. The first part of the concert is promised to be a radiance of love, revealing Paganini's pretentious brilliance and pompous character, as well as the humble and deep romance of love.


    Also in the work of Astor Piazzolla, alongside the often-played passionate Argentinian tango, there are many unheard pieces. The pieces related to the deepest emotional experiences of Piazzolla, will be the most surprising ones.


    The concert programme has been selected for the taste of a wide range audience, and the performers promise emotional enjoyment for everyone, because content creation and playing music is a passion for the musicians themselves. And, at the moment, all signs show that the concert will be very special!
    See you soon at Dzintari Concert Hall!

    Christmas Festival. Spanish and Gypsy Music

    Performers: Kristīne Balanas (violin), Marlēna Keine (vocal), Agnese Egliņa (piano).

    As Gioachino Rossini’s ‘La Danza’ says, ‘The hour is beautiful for dancing, anyone in love will not miss it.’ We invite you to a passionate dance under the sun that combines a longing and an interminable vigour in the Spanish and Gypsy Music concert programme, which, last season, brought much praise both from the audience and from the critics. Spanish violin virtuoso Pablo Sarasate wrote down Gypsy melodies and brought Bizet’s Carmen passion to his instrument; Maurice Ravel, the French composer with Basque roots, created a free and exotic fantasy in his ‘Tzigane’ (‘Gypsy’) for the violin.

    The listeners will have an opportunity to discover Spanish composers such as Barbieri, Obradors, Montsalvatge and Chapí, as well as the Spanish musical theatre tradition of zarzuela. Marlēna Keine’s brilliant and powerful soprano will colour the cançons, romances and southern poems. The energy of virtuosic Gypsy music and the beauty of melody will be heard in the violin performance of the young and talented musician Kristīne Balana. The Spanish rhythms and harmonies, the rattle of the castanet, and the jingling of the tambourine will be accompanied by the pianist Agnese Egliņa, in her masterful performance full of colourful details.
