THE RING OF ZEMGALE. In the Tides of History.

The fourth stage of the concert production cycle THE RING OF ZEMGALE through the cinematic concert Vēstures palos (In the Tides of History) tells a story of Zemgale as the land of plough and sword where fertility is intertwined with death. It sounds military marches and mourning music, canonised legends and boastful brass-player accompanied open-air balls. The rolling grain fields turn into war fields and burial fields that turn into grain fields again, and in them grows the Latvian literary language, its first presidents and statesmen, great poets and resilient poetesses. The scale of Zemgale is the width of its horizon, and the Latvian state in it is like Lielupe, in the tides of which the soul streams spread out across the plains of history meet again.

THE RING OF ZEMGALE in the musical journey of the cinematic concert will bring together the Latvian Radio choir, a group of musicians of the Latvian Radio Big Band, the musical Petrovskis brothers Oskars and Raimonds, as well as contemporary dance artists Lilija Lipora and Guntis Spridzāns.
