The soloist of the concert, pianist Arta Arnicāne, is a laureate of sixteen performing arts competitions. The ability to captivate the audience and create a special atmosphere has ensured the musician’s active concert activities in Europe, mainly in Switzerland, which the artist has chosen as her place of residence. Arta combines music on a contemporary piano with an ancient hammer piano, bringing to life the music of Viennese classics and early romanticism in an authentic sound.
