Peteris Vasks Festival
Pēteris Vasks is the most performed Latvian composer abroad. His music is played by the world’s leading musicians in the world’s major concert halls. Aware of the status of the composer’s oeuvre as a huge national treasure, Cēsis Concert Hall has launched a unique festival dedicated to the music and creative personality of Pēteris Vasks.
