FRIDAY 19:00
VESTARDS ŠIMKUS AND LIEPĀJA SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Vestards Šimkus / piano

Liepāja Symphony Orchestra

Program:
Vestards Šimkus–“Destiny Gates”
Vestards Šimkus– Concerto for Piano and String Orchestra (dedication to the awkward person)
Ludwig van Beethoven–Symphony No. 5

It is the beginning of the 19th century when one of the most popular symphonies of all times is born or Beethoven’s Fifth, the Fate Symphony, which symbolises a man’s struggle with the inevitable. And then in 2018 the brilliant piano virtuoso and composer Vestard Shimkus writes a composition for piano and orchestra named “The Power of Destiny”, which tells about a new soul entering this world. Both these thoughtful opera and the pianist’s Piano Concerto No. 1 will be performed by Liepāja Symphony Orchestra and Vestard Šimkus under the hand of conductor Atvars Lakstīgala.

Place: Liepaja Concert Hall "Great Amber", Great Hall
