Autumn Chamber Music Festival. Brahms. Plakidis. Impressions

18 Oct
It is commonly said that Johannes Brahms sensed things with his head, but thought about them with his heart. Something similar can be said about Pēteris Plakidis, because the classical and self-disciplined German romanticist is, to a certain extent, a spiritual relative of the Latvian composer, an absolute contrast, but certainly a source of inspiration. To celebrate Plakidis’ 70th birthday, brilliant musicians will gather on stage to perform his beloved Brahms, his own legendary “Dedication to Brahms,” and a series of jewels of vocal chamber music that Plakidis has composed.
