Latvian’s have met Lithuania’s rockstar Jeronimas Milius in Cēsis Art Festival in 2010, where he took part in a grand musical programme, and in Daugavpils Theatre, where he sang the solo in the production of The Ladies’ Paradise (Dāmu paradīze). This summer, the energetic charge of his voice will emerge in 60s-80s hits, including John Lennon’s Imagine; hit song Hey Joe, as performed by Jimi Hendrix; Come Together, the first song of The Beatles’ album Abbey Road; Morrison’s homage to Heidegger, laced with the sound of thunder; Satisfaction, one of The Rolling Stones’ quintessential songs, and Peter Gabriel’s poignant Mercy Street. The songs are arranged by Kārlis Vanags, conductor of Latvian Radio Big Band, who will stand in front of Milius, the LNSO string section musicians, and guests from realms outside the classical music world, including guitar player Matīss Čudars.
