Peteris Vasks Festival
Saturday, 13th April, 14:00
Organizators: Koncertzāle Cēsis

In respect of spiritual power and energy, the musical mindset of Pēteris Vasks is shared by composers like Arvo Pärt, Gia Kancheli, Henryk Mikołaj Górecki, John Taverner. As he was giving shape to the musical conception of the festival, Vasks wanted to use the proramme of chamber music to highlight the mental affinity between composers from Latvia and the rest of Northern Europe, the shared musical worldview of the Baltic and Nordic region ‒ which is why the programme of this concert features music by the composer most revered by Vasks, Arvo Pärt, works of the contemporary Swedeh composer Albert Schnelzer and the Finnish composer Olli Mustonen. These pieces will be performed by the musicians of O’Modernt chamber orchestra, known for their interest in new musical means of expression.
