From 4 August until 20 August the “Rimbenieks” Music Festival, which is being held for the third time already, organized by the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra in cooperation with the Local Government of the South Kurzeme Municipality, will tour South Kurzeme with 10 different concerts.
The main focus of the Festival will be on chamber music, which will be performed by ensembles consisting of Liepāja Symphony Orchestra musicians, involving other soloists as well.
The concert will feature the energetic serenade of Ludwig van Beethoven's youthful days, the energetic trio of the late romantic era composer Jan van Gilse and the ear-pleasing dances of Dmitri Shostakovich. Culmination of the programme will be one of the most beautiful melodies of all time – the transcendentally beautiful second movement of Antonin Dvořák's Symphony No.9 “From the New World”.
