Description

LMIC 060

“It was very important for us, specifically for the Latvian centenary, to show our country’s music in all of its splendour and diversity and to prove that Latvia is a global force in the realm of classical music. We recorded well-known compositions and also as-yet undiscovered masterpieces of piano music. The former category definitely includes Jānis Zālītis’ compositions for piano, Jāzeps Vītols’ Berceuse and Jānis Ivanovs’ later preludes. To the latter category belong Vītols’ Song of the Waves, Pēteris Vasks’ compositions from the The Seasons cycle and Arturs Maskats’ wonderful piano poem Kazbegi: Tsminda-Sameba, which is dedicated to us and inspired by the composer’s journey to Georgia. And, of course, Ādolfs Skulte’s Arietta...”
