A little Hope, a little feeling of Spring, a little Joy. Sinfonietta Riga opens it's 17th season.
In recent days, Normunds Šnē has commented and justified the inclusion of Robert Schhumann's 'Spring' symphony in the programm of the opening concert of Sinfonietta Rīga 17th season. He says - "we want to give you, our dear friends, a little energy, a little hope, a little joy...". And the master of the baton was completely right this time again (oh, yes, again)! This is exactly what we have all been missing in these hard times!. And then comes Brahms!
This time Brahms comes armed with Vineta Sareika in a dazzling pink dress. Although, of course, this is purely illustrative symbolism. The grain of truth is found in the music itself. We hear - the waving of the golden harvest, we hear the rich grain, pepper and paprika granaries of Austria-Hungary. And again - all this can hardly describe the incredibly easy, filigree game of the artist, like flying in the clouds! Did you find it too sharp? We don't! Right on time!
