Kremerata Baltica and Dmitry Sinkovsky in Early Music festival in Rundāle
In the very middle of summer Kremerata Baltica will take part in the annual Early Music festival, where joined by the violinist Dmitry Sinkovsky the musicians will perform in festival’s GALA concert.
During the concert for the first time ever Kremerata Baltica will be joined by the Russian violinist Dmitry Siknovsky. Sinkovsky is a one of a kind musician who expresses his “voice” with the help of a rare combination of three different forms of art: the sound of violin, the charisma of a conductor and the beautiful voice of a countertenor. In his many musical appearances, Sinkovsky effectively reflects one of the main ideas of the Baroque period: using instrument as if it was a voice of a singer, and vice versa – using his voice as if it was a delicate and perfectly balanced instrument.
The cooperation between Kremerata Baltica and The Early Music festival can already be described as a tradition of its own. Already for several years in a row Kremerata comes to Rundāle, each year bringing a different soloist and interpretation of the sound of the Baroque.
The festival’s tradition for the GALA concert is to present its guests with the pearl and most probably one of the most famous peaces of Baroque music – Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”. And so the tradition continues this year, when on the night of July 14, Vivaldi’s music will overtake the gardens and halls of Rundāle palace. More information about the concert can be found here.
The International Early Music festival takes place every year and gathers both local as well as foreign musicians who specialise in Baroque and Renaissance music. Some of the concerts take place in Riga, but the main events take place in the iconic Baroque style Rundāle palace. The final weekend and the GALA concert offers the festival’s guests a day full day of concerts and various events in the aesthetic style of the Baroque.
