The LNSO Brass Band
Conductor Jānis RETENAIS
George GERSHWIN, Duke ELLINGTON, Cole PORTER, Scott JOPLIN, Adam BLAKE, Antônio Carlos JOBIM
Bright and spectacular brass fanfares welcome all guests to the LNSO Summer Festival. Gershwin’s American returns to Paris; Porgy and Bess indulge their passion; Ellington’s unstoppable Caravan, Jobim’s girl from Ipanema and Porter’s clown all pay a visit; Blake introduces himself in a romantic mood, and Joplin shines in a medley. A musical wheel of American sentiments, perfectly suited for a reunion celebration.
After the intermission, the LNSO’s Chief Editor Orests Silabriedis and Artistic Director of the Ventspils Concert Hall Miks Magone will take the DJ mixer.
