Sinfonia E. The Unanswered question

17/02/2024    18.00
Concert Hall GREAT AMBER, Liepāja

Liepāja Symphony Orchestra's special focus is on the music by Latvian composers; the orchestra participates in premieres and also commissions new works, for which several awards have been received.

This time the 5th symphony Sinfonia E composed by Andris Vecumnieks will be premiered with the composer himself taking place at the conductor's desk.

The concert programme also features one of the most popular pieces by the Viennese classicist Ludwig van Beethoven: the Piano Concerto No.4 performed by pianist Reinis Zariņš as soloist.

Cosmic landscapes, on the other hand, will be conjured up by American modernist Charles Ives' symphonic miniature “The Unanswered Question”, which is considered one of composer's most prophetic and popular pieces, as it foresees such musical techniques as collage, spatiality and polytonality, or the simultaneous combination of different tonalities in a single music piece.
