If you are an early bird, you will experience peace in the evening and silence in the night. If you are an experienced owl, you will hear the magic of sunrise sounds and the eagerness of the dawn. Night, morning, day and evening include the miraculous appearance and disappearance of the Sun, and that is the dramatic content of the new programme produced by the artistic director of the Latvian Radio Choir, Sigvards Kļava, “Around-the-Clock or 1440.” The around-the-clock colours involve new opuses that offer the views of modern Latvians. The compositions for the Latvian Radio choir, harp, percussion and electronics are by recipients of the Latvian Great Music Award, Maija Einfelde and Santa Ratniece, as well as by Aleksejs Peguševs, a graduate from the composition class taught by Juris Karlsons, a fan of chamber and vocal music, and the recipient of numerous awards. The programme will feature a diverse amount of skills and different styles, involving improvisations by the virtuoso percussionist Ivo Krūskops and music by Juris Karlsons, Anete Ašmane, Andrejs Selickis and Ēriks Ešenvalds.
