This year, the artistic director of the of the choir Sigvards Kļava has interspersed the choruses and corals from Bach's passions with Pēteris Vasks' music, ranging from a quiet contemplation in the stanzas by Mother Teresa to calm prayer and jubilations in praise of the Resurrection in his newest works Gloria and Mein Herr und mein Gott, performed by the Latvian Radio Choir together with the chamber orchestra Sinfonietta Rīga and organist Ilze Reine.

A concert performance Novecento

31 May
The same world-famous Italian author and philosopher Alessandro Baricco (1958) who studies glass castles, silk and Homer, during his early years has much though about music and even wrote books about it. Baricco is erudite, rather provocative and even a bit quarrelsome. He loves tangled ideas and always tries to purify the objects that he is studying from trivial assumptions.
