August came with sorrowful news about the passing of Pēteris Plakidis – a unique Latvian composer. Plakidis had a one-of-a-kind music vocabulary, which at the same time was exceptionally Latvian and brilliantly universal. He was a special composer, in love with chamber music – he played the piano and composed for the closest ones. This concert was planned with participation by Pēteris Plakidis himself performing Romantic Music on piano, instead the concert will offer his masterpieces of instrumental chamber music – Small Concerto for Two Violins and an invention – Quints for Two Pianos. The concert will also include his contemporaries – Leonid Desyatnikov, the playful composer dear to Kremerata, Nikolai Kapustin, the master of contemporary piano music, and the Georgian artist Sulkhan Tsintsadze with Six Miniatures performed by Avi Avital, the world-famous mandolin player and receiver of ECHO Award.
