Composers’ Open Masterclasses


Open masterclasses of Tenso composers will offer yet unexplored singing forms. Singers from Latvian Radio Choir will offer a brand new programme they prepared at the sound laboratory together with eight composers from various countries and „Sarband” musicians. The background of the new material is gonna be the ancient texts from The Song of Solomon. The programme is a mix of creativity and archaic cultural fields, therefore, it will be a new discovery in Western choir music demonstrating a high-end quality of professional choir music.
