About the concert:

This will be the debut of the world-famous Latvian artist at the concert hall Great Amber. Elīna Garanča will visit Liepāja with a chamber music program featuring the best pieces by Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms and Sergei Rachmaninov. “Elīna Garanča is one of the most sought-after singers on Earth; among mezzo-sopranos she has few peers, vocally, musically, or dramatically,” says the New York Classical Review about the Latvian singer. 

The singer will share the stage with pianist Malcolm Martineau, known as the accompanist for the most prominent opera divas – Anna Netrebko, Anne Sofie von Otter, Angela Gheorghiu, and others. He and Elīna Garanča have had many brilliant concerts at the most prestigious halls in the world – Wigmore Hall in London, Carnegie Hall in New York, Musikverein in Vienna, etc. Their artistic partnership is referred to as magical. 

The concert is organized by SIA “Lielais Dzintars” with the support of Liepāja City Council. The concert has no intermissions, approximate duration: 1 hour 15 minutes More information available on lielaisdzintars.lv.
