Project description:

J. S. Bach and music, which has enriched the world and Latvia’s musical landscape, inspired by his personality and artistic genius, is a boundless ocean. For the first time in Latvia’s concert history, a unified concert cycle is created to bring into one program events planned in Riga Dome cathedral, Liepāja Trinity Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Dubulti to host the premieres of compositions dedicated to each of these places of worship, which will be crowned off by the first performance of the cycle ‘Latvian Organ Trilogy’ in the Dome cathedral. The project will bring together more than 20 organists, as well as quire, soloists, individual musicians and Latvian National Symphony orchestra.
