Sinfonietta Rīga and Midori, the ambassador of Japanese violin

USA-based Japanese violinist Midori is able to move the audiences both in the most prestigious concert halls around the globe and in venues far from the elitist and glitzy world of classical music. Her masterful performance and deep musical understanding elicits a special affinity. In Riga, the phenomenal musician will arrive together with the brilliant Latvian violinist Elīna Bukša, currently living in Brussels, who has previously participated in the International Community Engagement Program tour to India, organized by Midori. In the Great Guild Hall they will play together in the inimitable labyrinth of styles and citations, merging tango, avant-garde, and Baroque into one seamless narrative that is Alfred Schnittke's Concerto grosso No. 1. Elīna Bukša will also perform Chain II, the poetic, multi-stranded masterpiece of Polish modernist Witold Lutosławski, and Midori - the nowadays rarely performed Sergei Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto in D major, op 19. Sinfonietta Riga artists will also perform Sergei Prokofiev's piece “Overture on Hebrew Themes ”, op. 34.
