Every year, the Riga Orchestra invites listeners to classical music concerts in the Riga Dome Cathedral in August.

On the three Tuesdays of August, the large acoustics of the Dome Church will feature music for wind instruments and the organ. This year, the Riga Orchestra has invited a number of conductors, organists and soloists to collaborate, including a reunion with conductor Ainars Rubikis.

This summer, listeners will be offered three contrasting music programs – “Bach, Beethoven, Brahms”, “Bach, Schubert, Schuman” and “Bach, Mendelssohn, Mahler” – , Liene Andreta Kalnciems and Jānis Pelši, as well as soloists – singer Evija Martinson and saxophonist Aigars Raumanis. They will be performed at the Riga Dome on August 4, 11 and 25.

The chief conductor of the Orchestra “Riga” tells Ilze Medne more in an interview Valdis Butāns and the singer Evija Martinsone.
