Let us celebrate saxophone music!

In the concert on 17 February at the Great Guild, together with the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Jānis Stafeckis, the Riga Saxophone Quartet will premiere Uģis Prauliņš' opus, while Arvydas Kazlauskas will perform John Adams' remarkable Saxophone Concerto.
