The artists and programmes have been confirmed for the first ever Riga Jurmala Music Festival. The new-concept festival takes place in the historic cities of Riga and Jurmala and presents four powerful weekends – July 19-21, August 16-18, August 23-25 and August 30-September 1. Each weekend is anchored by a leading international orchestra and conductor, with a range of symphonic concerts and recitals, featuring a dazzling array of the foremost stars of classical music, both instrumental and vocal. The Festival is destined to contribute to the rich panorama of cultural offerings in Latvia and provides a major platform for young talent from the Baltic region and beyond, all taking place in a celebratory atmosphere of artistic exchange.

The Riga Jurmala Music Festival is under the artistic direction of Martin Engstroem. Engstroem returns to the Baltic – he was born across the water in Sweden – from the mountains of Switzerland, where he continues to run the Verbier Festival: since he founded it 25 years ago, the Verbier Festival has become synonymous with the world’s greatest musicians and with the development of exceptional young talent.

He collaborates on the Riga Jurmala Music Festival with Associate Artistic Director Miguel Esteban, co-founder of the Verbier Festival, COO of London-based production company Idili Live and worldwide associate producer of Mamma Mia! The Party.

Supporting the Riga Jurmala Music Festival is the Riga Jurmala Music Festival Foundation, a philanthropic body dedicated to creating world-class classical music events in Latvia. The Foundation is looking forward to building on the success of the Baltic Musical Seasons concert series that was launched in 2017, and which has featured such Latvian luminaries as conductor Andris Nelsons, soprano Kristīne Opolais and mezzo-soprano Elīna Garanča, and international visitors such as conductor Antonio Pappano (with the Orchestra dell'Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia), tenor Juan Diego Flórez, violinist Joshua Bell, pianist Denis Matsuev, actor John Malkovich, the Vienna Philharmonic and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra.

The festival is committed to making all its events available to the widest possible audience by offering a range of ticket prices.
