Special Music Event in Riga Cathedral
posted: 2008.12.04 11:17 write to the editor 

On November 18, in honour of the 90th anniversary since the proclamation of independence of the Republic of Latvia, a very special music event took place in the Riga Cathedral: a 6-hour-long Latvian organ music marathon concert.

The concert program included compositions of the most important Latvian composers performed by the best Latvian organists. The marathon concert was a present to everyone who visited the Cathedral on the 90th birthday of Latvia.

Those who still have not had a chance to listen to the magnificent pipe organ of the Riga Cathedral can attend CONCERTO PICCOLO on Wednesdays at 12:00 am. Wednesday concerts are about 20 minutes long and their program usually includes 3 world-famous compositions of the most brilliant composers, for instance,  J.S Bach, A. Vivaldi, T. Albinoni, L. Vierne, M. Dupre, E. Grieg, etc.

CONCERTO PICCOLO is a real treat for music lovers and will not be forgotten not only because of the professionalism of the organists but also for the beauty, clarity, warmth and strength of the Riga Cathedral pipe organ, which at the time of its completion in 1884, was the largest in the world. The perfect acoustics and the atmosphere of the 13th-century Cathedral add extra strength and richness to the musical experience of listeners. The admission fee: LVL 5.00.

The Riga Cathedral offers a rich program of concerts all year long. To find out more, please visit either or
