Symphony is one of the most concise, spacious and beautiful forms that the humanity provides its message in. The spirit of the era, the advancement of society and deeply personal revelations are simultaneously miraculously manifested in masterpieces that have outlasted their time and become a part of the world’s cultural heritage.
Generations are changing, and the symphony, which the European society has known and loved for more than two hundred years, is slowly shrouded in the dust of oblivion. There are fewer and fewer people who come to concerts with scores. There are fewer and fewer of those who are able to compare dozens of different interpretations of the same symphony and for whom the message of music, history, literature, philosophy, painting and architecture is intertwined in a full and intelligent sense of the world.
Back in the summer, Liepaja Symphony Orchestra, with the support of the Ministry of Culture and the State Culture Capital Foundation, started a new series of concert conversations CLOSER (TUVĀK) with the aim of bringing the listener closer to the orchestra’s musicians, by showing them in conversations and music, which, as recognized by music reviewer Orests Silabriedis, sometimes comes with really great surprises. This series has already gained the recognition of listeners with 15 broadcasts and is planned to be continued.
The successful example of getting closer to the audience led the orchestra to expanding the range of topics covered, and a new series has been created - Symphony CLOSER, which will introduce the audience to beautiful, classical symphonies which everyone should know.
This time we will introduce you to the amazing Joseph Haydn's Symphony No.104, conducted by Andris Veismanis.
You will be able to enjoy the concert in a live stream mode on the internet and it will last for about an hour without a break. The free live stream will be available both in the video gallery of the Liepaja Symphony Orchestra’s website
Please note that only the live stream will be available free of charge.
