    Sergei PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No 2 in G minor op. 16
    Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 6 in B minor op. 54

    At the heart of the final weekend of the RĪGA JŪRMALA Music Festival is an orchestra which could easily be called the bravest and wittiest of the world’s orchestras. The concept of “boundaries” doesn’t seem to apply to the London Symphony Orchestra. Since its founding in 1904, the ensemble has always been avant garde, introducing or encapsulating the trends of the time. The Orchestra was the first to make records, film music, found its own record label, play at the Opening Ceremony for the Olympic Games and has taken contemporary music to new heights.

    The LSO’s Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda and Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho first collaborated in a recording of Frédéric Chopin’s music. Today the musicians will perform Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 at the RĪGA JŪRMALA Music Festival.

    Performers: Ying Fang (soprano) and Ken Noda (piano)

    Programme:

    HÄNDEL Endless Pleasure (Semele)
    HÄNDEL Angels Ever Bright and Fair (Theodora)
    SCHUBERT Viola, D. 876

    One of the most promising young sopranos in the world, Ying Fang is seen as one of the most talented Chinese opera singers of her generation. The press have praised her vocal vitality, attractiveness, and ability to inhabit many different emotional states, also putting to use her charming, flirtatious acting talent. Fang sings with a sophisticated lightness and directness, both dignified and convincing. It would be incorrect to call her “promising” – according to many critics she is already a fully matured artist.

    Fang feels equally free with the music of different eras, paying particular attention to the greats of Baroque and Romanticism. In Jūrmala, Fang will be joined on stage by prominent pianist and vocal coach Ken Noda, whose primary role is at the Metropolitan Opera, but has given concerts with almost all of the world’s leading opera singers.

    With concerts taking place in the historic cities of Riga and Jurmala, the Riga Jurmala Music Festival features four weekends throughout the summer. A leading international orchestra and conductor anchor each weekend, offering a range of symphonic concerts and recitals that feature leading stars and young up-and-coming talent.

    Piotr TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 5 in E minor op. 64

    At the heart of the final weekend of the RĪGA JŪRMALA Music Festival is an orchestra which could be called the bravest and wittiest of the world’s orchestras. The concept of “boundaries” doesn’t seem to apply to the London Symphony Orchestra – since its founding in 1904, the ensemble has always been avant garde, introducing or approving the trends of the time. The orchestra was the first make records, film music, found its own record label, play at the Opening Ceremony for the Olympic Games and take contemporary music to new heights.

    Performing along with the LSO, under the baton of its Principal Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda, will be Russian violinist Vadim Repin. Fiery passion with impeccable technique, poetry and sensitivity are his trademarks. He entered the world music arena almost as a child prodigy, winning gold at the Wienawski Competition at the age of 11. Since then, he has performed in the most famous concert halls of Europe, America and Asia. At the age of seventeen, he became the youngest ever winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition.

    Lucas Debargue, piano

    Performers: Luca Debargue, piano

    Programme:

    Domenico SCARLATTI Sonatas
    Jochann Sebastian BACH Toccata in C minor BWV 911
    Ludwig van BEETHOVEN Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor op. 111

    Lucas Debargue was discovered by the music world after his performance at the 15th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2015. “Debargue is a befuddling case of musical potential. His talent is real; his training, mysterious; his artistry, at times arrestingly beautiful. Not since Ivo Pogorelich in 1980 has a pianist garnered more attention for, essentially, not winning a competition” summarised critics (KQED). Adding: “Power, subtlety, control, imagination, taste – he’s got it all” (Le Point). Debargue has performed in Latvia multiple times andhas become a firm favourite of our audiences.

    DAGAMBA feat TCHAIKOVSKY

    Performers: DAGAMBA - Valters Pūce (cello), Antons Trocjuks (cello), Dainis Tenis (keyboard), Hamidreza Rahbaralam (percussions), Artūrs Jermaks (drums), Latvian Radio Bigband

    Programme: pieces by Pyotr Tchaikovsky and original music by DAGAMBA

    The new concert programme is based on the idea of modern tradition creating an unusual collaboration between different musicians, thus discovering astonishing, unique and unheard-of tones. The concert programme “DAGAMBA feat TCHAIKOVSKY” includes not only Peter Tchaikovsky. It interacts with original music of the band, exceeding classical standards and making the seemingly impossible possible.

    “Tchaikovsky, one of the great classics, is also present in modern times. His music is used in cinema soundtracks and computer games, while seeing the ballet “Nutcracker” is a Christmas tradition for many families worldwide. Therefore our new programme is a collaboration with the great master as if he were still living among us, just as his music is,” says Valters Pūce, leader of the band.

    “When beginning the creation of the new concert programme we realised what a challenge it is to work with the romantic and deep music of Tchaikovsky. It is emotional and melodic, while DAGAMBA gives it dynamism and the rhythm of rock,” says pianist Dainis Tenis.
