Latvian Composers for the Centenery of Latvia (14/06/2018)

"Latvian Composers for the Centenary of Latvia" has been released!
As Latvia's centenary drew near, the artistic director and head conductor of State Choir Latvia - Māris Sirmais - revealed an idea for a gift to Latvia: to make a creative laboratory in which Latvian composers would create new a capella pieces for mixed choir. As a result, inspired by the idea 77 composers wrote songs for mixed choir. State Choir Latvia collected, rehearsed and performed the works over the course of three years and five concerts. This new repertoire would be relevant not only during Latvia's celebrated anniversary, but also for many years after the grand festivities. 
This publication contains the sheet music of 19 choral works and a list of all the songs created in the creative laboratory, and the sheet music of all the pieces will soon be available in Musica Baltica.
