February 20 at 22.00 on the television channel “ReTV” there will be a concert in Dzintari concert hall “Born in Latvia. Latvian jazz melodies”. Taking into account the restrictions of public events, the concerts in the Dzintari Concert Hall can still be watched remotely – on the television channel “ReTV”, informs the public relations manager of the concert hall Mārtiņš Pučka.
“The Return of Young Jazz Professionals” – this is what musicians Beāte Zviedre (soprano), Jānis Rubiks (double bass), Jānis Bērziņš (guitar), Rūdolfs Dankfelds (drums), Artjoms Sarvi (piano), who have accumulated extensive and extensive experience, call this concert program in the field of foreign music and now wants to relax in Latvian. At the same time, this program is a reminder of how different Latvians and Latvians tend to be.
The creative team has been looking for the Latvian code in poetry – both in the works of classics and in the verses of modern authors. Along with the poems of Aspazija, Ojārs Vācietis and Imants Ziedonis, texts by Madara Gruntmane, Pēteris Draguns, Māris Salējs and other young authors are born in music. Kārlis Vērdiņš’s poem “Come to Me” (“Come to Me”), which experts have ranked in the list of the best love poems of the last fifty years, is also dressed in sounds, the representative of the concert hall points out.
In music, these so different and diverse texts have been brought to life by Jānis Rubiks, whose creative handwriting combines elements such as the sound of European jazz, Nordic restraint, energetic interplay and free improvisation, reports M.Pučka.
