Concert series PERSONALLY

Two among the brightest musicians of their generation – the owner of the captivating voice with an incredibly broad spectrum of genres, Jānis Šipkēvics, and master pianist of meticulous interpretations Reinis Zariņš – will offer a concert program centered around works by Latvian composers. The selection of music will provide a warm embrace and space for poetic enjoyment and refuge.

The basis of the program is the extensive cycle Baltas dziesmas by multiple Grand Music Award winner Andris Dzenītis, with lyrics by Aleksandra Line. This composition, which was started during the pandemic and finished as life nearby is torn apart by cruelty, has been created out of a ‘need for calming, sheltering music that would resemble a warm and deeply personal embrace. The music and lyrics speak and tell of all the good things around us, of positive and remarkable human traits – sincerity, love, courage, open-mindedness, fairness, justice, respect, sacrifice, presence, comfort. No apogee, no dramatics, just letting the listener enjoy spiritual refuge.’ This piece brought Jānis Šipkēvics and Reinis Zariņš together on stage for the first time last year.

In an interpretation of Benjamin Britten’s ‘Canticle II’, they will be joined by Mārtiņš Klišāns to tell the story of Abraham’s graceful sacrifice. The program will be further enriched by Krists Auznieks’ poetic piano piece ‘Carmine’ and Šipkēvics’ own music.

Program: Benjamin Britten, Andris Dzenītis, Jānis Šipkēvics, Krists Auznieks
