Three for the Weekend: Concert, Vintage, Exhibition

This weekend, we offer ideas for a cultural weekend of different genres and styles to bear the dark evenings of the autumn-winter period.

Candlelight Classics

A trio will perform world classic compositions in the instrumental chamber music genre at the St. Paul's Church (Svētā Pāvila baznīca, Augusta Deglava Street 1) on both November 24 and 25 evenings. 

The artists Anna Salnit (piano), Irina Viļegžaņina (cello) and Roksana Tarvide (piano) will perform pieces from Beethoven, Hendel, Rachmaninov, Chopin, Sibelius, and other master composers. The concerts begin at 19:00. 

More details can be found on the Facebook event page.

Turbo Vintage Market

On November 26, 11:00 to 16:00, the Āgenskalns Market (Nometņu Street 64) will open a vintage fair for a chance to get a stylish and warm winter outfit, as well as upcycled and sustainable goods for eco-lovers and Latvian designer crafts.

Entrance is free.


On November 25, an exhibition is unveiled at the Latvian National Museum of Art – Artūrs Virtmanis' personal exhibit "Psychopomp: A beginner's guide".

"The ecological crisis, war, pandemic, and inequality have all become part of normality. Dystopian scenarios of global demise are increasingly becoming our reality. Any system, left to self-flow, turns to chaos over time: heat energy disperses, biological organisms perish, societies collapse. Is there anyone who can bring us into this new reality, a guide that could prepare us for change? The exhibition, “Psychopomp: A beginner's Guide to the Other Side,” provides an opportunity to see disaster as a spectacle, where the grim and melancholy blend in with the dreamy and ecstatic," says the exhibit's description.

The exhibition will be on until February 11, 2024.
