The Washington Post called them a great musical force, The Advertiser—one of the best choirs in the world. Their album Adam’s Lament, featuring music composed by Arvo Pärt himself, won a Grammy. They have performed at, among others, the American Library of Congress, the prestigious Queen Elizabeth Hall in Great Britain and Konzerthaus Berlin in Germany. On 21 November, we will have the pleasure to hear them in Warsaw!
The Latvian Radio Choir, which has been operating continuously since 1940, will perform in the beautiful interiors of the Holy Trinity Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession. It will perform under the baton of its artistic director, Sigvards Klava.
The repertoire will include works by Latvian, Polish, French and Swedish composers of the 20th century. We will also hear Anton Bruckner’s Ave Maria for mixed choir and Die zwei blauen Augen by Gustav Mahler arranged by composer and conductor Clytus Gottwald, who will celebrate his 96th birthday the day before!
