Latvian Radio Choir’s singers together with eight composers of various nationalities and members of the oriental music ensemble "Sarband" present a conceptually new programme in Spīķeri Concert Hall on October 21, based on ancient texts from Solomon's Song of Songs.
The programme juxtaposes creativity with archaic cultural layers, expanding into uncharted territories in Western choir music and showcasing the pinnacles of professional choir music.
The Tenso Network Europe unites the European choirs since 2003. One of the four founders of the network and its driving force in terms of ideas is Latvian Radio Choir, which will host the international choir festival "Tenso Days in Riga" in October 2014, when Riga will become the capital of European professional choirs, organizing masterclasses for young composers, meetings of professionals, and concerts. "Tenso Days in Riga" will see the Latvian Radio Choir and other leading European professional choirs offering programs to the audiences never presented before.
