The soloist of the Latvian National Opera Jūlija Vasiljeva and the pianist Māris Skuja invite you to the program “Garūta. Rachmaninov ”in the Beletage Hall of the Latvian National Opera. The concert program includes solo songs by Lūcija Garūta and romances by Sergei Rachmaninow.
But already with Julia Wassiljew We meet in the “Classic” studio.
“Lūcija Garūta is commemorating the 100th anniversary next year, and in honor of this event we are working with Māris Skujs on the recording of her solo song album,” says Jūlija Vasiljeva. “In the first part of the concert, the solo songs of Lūcija Garūta will be heard – both the popular“ Saint Love ”,“ Moon Boat ”and“ You’re Here Again! ”And lesser known ones. Lūcija Garūta studied in France and her compositions have a great influence on the harmony, fragility and depth of French music.
This program is a challenge for both the singer and the pianist.
In order to make the program more varied and to give it a romantic accent, we have built in Sergei Rachmaninov’s romances in the second part of the concert. ”
