All festival Latvian New Music Days 2021 concerts this spring take place online. The organizers, the Latvian Composers’ Union, and also the authors of the compositions emphasize that concerts can be listened to online anywhere, and recommend listening to them outdoors. That is why they are called foot concerts. At the center of the festival’s concert programs is a masterpiece of the 20th century, a masterpiece that has changed the ways of music development. These outstanding masterpieces have been sources of inspiration for new works by Latvian composers who contextualize, refer to, meditate on the poetic and technological aspects of these works.
At the end of the festival on April 29 at 19 live broadcast of the monumental chamber music opus by French composer Gerard Grize from the Grand Guild The season was lost; premiere in Latvia. Master’s reflections on musical space continue new works by two Latvian composers for orchestra – Mārtiņa Viļuma The Stream of Disappearance a cute leimans Ray-bows.

“Forty minutes long The season was lost; (1994–96) for six musicians (flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello, piano) is perhaps the most important chamber music opus in French music of the 20th century. on the other side. In terms of impact, it can be compared to Olivier Messiah Quartet end of time, which represented the latest composition ideas in the 1940s, “says Rolands Kronlaks, the artistic director of the Latvian New Music Days.
Title of the composition The season was lost; translated meaning A whirlwind of time. Grize in this opus contrasts different sensations and structures of time, confronts them, associating them with a certain degree of harmony / inharmonicity of the sound spectrum, spatial density, feelings of predictability / unpredictability of music flow. The material and form are formed by the same formula of musical gesture, expressed in different dimensions of time. To a large extent, it can be said that this work sums up all the previous experience of the composer in working with the sound spectrum, forms and other compositional aspects.
Referring to Grizz’s work in her opus, Linda Leimane plays with the proportions of time between the hot subjective and the cool objective, arranging the sounds in the circle of the rainbow color spectrum. She recommends listening to it in a wide and open field – not in a too wooded swamp or in a field with a couple of oaks in the distance, feeling the ground under your feet.
