In the first concert of "Tenso Days in Riga" Latvian Radio Choir, conducted by Sigvards Kļava,  will take its audience to the fairy-tale worlds of Kārlis Skalbe, Hans Christian Andersen and brothers Grimm, as American composer David Lang's "Girl with Matches" will be premiered together with the first presentations of Ēriks Ešenvalds and Līga Celma's musical mystique.

Video projections and visual production by director Roberts Rubīns will add an extra value to the mystical sound art mood. Therefore, it will become a complete contemporary art experience.

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.
