144. season opening together with Christian Lindberg and Guntis Kuzma

14/09/2024    18.00
Concert Hall GREAT AMBER, Great Hall, Liepāja

At the opening of the 144th concert season, the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra invites the audience to an emotionally saturated concert, where the aesthetics of romanticism will be expressed in colorful orchestration and melodic themes. 

This time, the extravagant Swedish conductor and trombonist Christian Lindberg, whom the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra has already worked with at the Liepaja International Star Festival in 2023, will take his place at the conductor's desk, while Guntis Kuzma, the chief conductor and artistic director of the Orchestra, at the season opening concert will take the stage as a soloist in John Corigliano's dazzling Clarinet Concerto, which is a virtuoso, colorful composition combining neoclassical style with romantic melodies and dynamic rhythms, highlighting the clarinet as a solo instrument.

The programme also includes the Symphony No.5 by the great Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, which is considered one of the most significant symphonies in world music of the 20th century.

Latvian symphonic music holds a prominent place in the new concert season, and the composition “Vientuļā priede” (“The Lonely Pine Tree”) by Andris Dzenītis, which is made from the bits and pieces of Emīls Dārziņš’ lost symphonic work, will be premiered.
