At the Liepāja International Stars Festival, which will take place next spring, on March 15 at 7 p.m., "Trio Elpo" will delight the audience with a jazz program in the Dzintars Jurgelaitis chamber hall of the "Lielais dzintars" concert hall.
TRIO ELPO was created in 2016 (from 2016 until 2022 known as Equanimity Trio) by three friends and musicians - Jānis Rubiks, Edgars Cīrulis and Rūdolfs Dankfelds. Trio performs their own compositions combining influences from jazz, academic and rock music.
Their music is characterized by vast and meditative musical landscapes, strong and dynamic rhythmic structures and spirited, energetic interplay between the musicians. At the heart of this trio is the idea of creating music that brings about a state of flow and connectedness, combining the best of many musical worlds.
The 32nd Liepāja International Stars Festival will take place next spring, from March 9 to 23, in Liepāja concert hall "Lielais dzintars".
Tickets for the Festival concerts can be purchased at "Biļešu Paradīze" ticket offices.
Liepāja International Stars Festival will be held for the twenty-eighth year in a row. Once as the International Piano Stars Festival it was started in 1993 by former artistic director of Liepāja Symphony Orchestra – Imants Resnis. There have been more than 170 pianists participating from all of the world − Europe, Asia, North and South America, Australia. We have had the privilege of seeing such high class artists as Julian Joseph, Mikhail Voskresensky, Freddy Kempf, Noriko Ogawa, Robert Mitchell, Christina Ortiz, Dmitrij Bashkirov, Stanislav Igolinsky, Brigitte Engerer, Lazar Berman, Rolando Luna, Chano Dominguez, Eldar Djangirov and many more.
During the closure of the 23rd International Piano Stars Festival Uldis Lipskis, Board member of Liepāja Symphony Orchestra pointed out that the festival will have its rebirth in the coming year, acquiring a broader scope and featuring not only pianists but also outstanding singers and virtuosos of other instruments to attract even greater audiences. Therefore this is no longer the International Piano Stars Festival, but the Liepāja International Stars Festival
The Festivals' successful cooperation with the foreign soloists and conductors makes the world aware of Latvian culture and ensures residents of Latvia and not only with a high quality live performances.
The Festival is supported by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Latvia, the State Cultural Capital Foundation and Liepāja City.
