“The concert cycle “Latvia’s Ring” is a unique gift on the occasion of the centenary of the Latvian State. Sigvards Kļava has brought together outstanding creative personalities, challenging them to make audacious use of various artistic forms: academic music, folklore, visual art and video to augment the compositions. The extensive programme will be launched with a singing rendition of the story of Latgale and concluded with a musical eulogy dedicated to the fertile land of Zemgale. Produced with the generous co-financing of Boris and Ināra Teterev, the project is a stellar example of philanthropic involvement. Moreover, thanks to both philanthropists, the Latvian population can look forward to an even greater present at the conclusion of the State’s centenary in the form of the Latvian Museum of Contemporary Art which will open its doors in 2021,” commented Minister for Culture Dace Melbārde.
