Liepāja Symphony Orchetra

Samuel BARBER – Violin Concerto, Op. 14
Jean SIBELIUS – Symphony No. 2 D major, Op. 43
This will be a reunion between the Latvian violinist Vineta Sareika and the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra with maestro Gintaras Rinkevičius, with whom the artist performed in Vilnius in late 2018. The program features both the Symphony No. 2 by the grand of Scandinavian music, Jean Sibelius, complimented by the acoustics and architecture of the Liepāja concert hall, and, as a contrast — Samuel Barber's music with its distinctive vastness of the American prairie. Both Barber's Adagio for Strings and his Violin Concerto will be performed.
