Latvian National Symphony Orchestra. Imants Kalniņš. The Fourth

02 Feb
The Vein Trio has arrived from Switzerland to remind us that the piano trio is sometimes considered the smallest possible of orchestras. The smallest of orchestras is meeting the largest – the LNSO – to conjure up symphonic bop, as it coined by Vein Trio percussionist Florian Arbenz. The three conceptual pillars of the collaboration are flexibility, unpredictability, and teamwork. Imants Kalniņš will also join the team – the Swiss musicians will accompany the performance of his legendary Symphony no. 4.
