SACRED MUSIC HOURS. AIVARS KALĒJS AND MARTINA DOEHRING
August 30, 13:30 | Šiauliai Church of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary
AIVARS KALĒJS (organ, Latvia)
MARTINA DOEHRING (soprano, Germany)
One of the most prominent artists in Latvia – the composer, pianist and organ player Aivars Kalejs is constantly surprising audiences with his creative whims, productivity and premieres. And for this appearance in Šiauliai, he’s put together a program of classical masterpieces with his long-term stage partner, the soprano Martina Doehring.
According to the performers, they don’t try to go too much out of their way to amaze audiences. Yet they usually have the opposite effect – rather, the performers are often overwhelmed by the applauding public, basking in rays of warmth and appreciation – a scenario that is even repeated at halls most spoilt for musical novelties.
Program features J. S. Bach, L. van Beethoven, G. F. Haendel, F. Chopin, A. Kalejs.
Concert duration: 60 min.
