Great Guild

The origin of the Great Guild - one of the oldest public buildings in the Baltics - go back to the first half of the 14th century. It has always been open to cultural and social events.

The edifice of the Great Guild was opened in 1857, with elements of Eclecticism of the English Gothic style and an outstanding interior. After a fire in 1963, it was reconstructed two years later with a new entrance-hall and interior adapted to needs of a concert hall, becoming the home of the Riga Philharmonic.

Sinfonietta Riga presents: American Seasons and Graffiti for chamber orchestra

28 Apr
For the past several years, Latvian violinist Jana Ozoliņa has been studying and working in Switzerland, frequently taking additional classes from the renowned violinist Boris Kuschnir. She performs with the Young Eurasian Soloists, a chamber orchestra formed by herself. In Riga, the skilled and spirited soloist will perform the Vivaldi-inspired, melodically throbbing concerto The American Four Seasons by the founding father of American minimalism, Philip Glass. Another unusual encounter proposed by Sinfonietta Rīga will be the string piece by Unsuk Chin, the best-known Korean composer in Europe – inspired by street graffiti and embellished with bells and gongs. Furthermore, also performed will be a new chamber concerto by the quiet Latvian with an ironic smile - Oskars Herliņš.
