football-truceSoldier’s Tales. 1918. Europe. The war is over. The great empires are ruined. The old powers do not impose their will anymore. Exhausted soldiers leave trenches and return to their villages and towns. A new world is about to be brought into being; big and small nations begin to realise their cultural ambitions and self-government. Europe is turning into a choir of many new voices. New states are emerging. From Balkan to Carpathian Mountains, from Mediterranean to Baltic Sea new Europe is forming.

On a very twisty way                                                                                                                A valiant soldier is plodding homewards…

Program dedicated to the centenary of Latvian State. VIE-RIX

Santa vizine400x400PROGRAMME-DIALOGUE. Two countries, two epochs, two composers-geniuses:

W. A. Mozart and P. Plakidis. The foremost Austrian genius of all times Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791) and one of the most celebrated Latvian composers of past decades – late Pēteris Plakidis (1947-2017). The programme is designed as a creative dialogue between the two giants. In his music, Plakidis constantly revisits other composers, styles and epochs, while an incessant player with human emotions Mozart always finds unorthodox twist.

303526fe9eca389482d304e0ed40f5baCharlie Chaplin is the only figure in the history of cinematography who was the author of scenario, the director, the composer and the lead actor in his films. He was rated the greatest genius of film of the 20th century. His interwar films tell stories in which the veil of humour conceals subtle human emotions and existential truth. The festival presents Chaplin’s most comical film with live musical accompaniment. The film contemplates delicate human sentiments and the essence of life in the background of kaleidoscopic circus life.
