Best of classical music coming to Kurzeme

Classical music connoisseurs along the west coast of Latvia are about to enjoy some high-class entertainment with the arrival of the SENSUS music festival in Liepaja and Ventspils on July 12-15.

The Liepāja concert hall Lielais dzintars and the Centre of Performing Arts Jūras vārti will jointly host the International Classical Music Festival SENSUS, which will gather together more than 80 musicians from the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra from Amsterdam and other leading European and Latvian Symphony Orchestra musicians in Latvia for the first time.

Here is a sample from a previous year.
