The two latter artists, as well as Risto Joost, the young and internationally recognized conductor, will join the LSO on stage for the first time. The Liepaja Symphony Amber Sound Orchestra is also with great anticipation looking forward to cooperate with conductors Gintaras Rinkevicius from Lithuania and Yalchin Adigezalov from Azerbaijan.
