Reviews

FOUR STARS
“A bracing selection of contemporary Latvian music combining Eastern color and Western sonorities in dazzling combinations with an operatic intensity that will leave you breathless.”
BBC Music Magazine - Julian Haylock / December 2015

“All three composers featured on this luxuriously presented release hail from the Latvian region of Kurland (also known as Courland), and their music enjoys admirably secure and understanding advocacy from the Liepāja SO under Atvars Lakstīgala….
Soloist Ints Dālderis performs brilliantly… Boasting superior production values and most helpful documentation, this anthology deserves to do very well.”
Gramophone - Andrew Achenbach / Awards Issue, September 2015

“This Lepāja Symphony Orchestra recording is a very fine release indeed… The recording is rich and detailed, the performances impeccable, and the presentation of the CD is glossy and attractive. In fact, the entire Odradek label initiative with its idealistic non-profit motivation is worth anyone’s attention.”
MusicWeb International - Dominy Clements / October 2015

“As soon as I’d played the CD I wanted to hear it all over again. This is approachable, thoughtful, imaginative and atmospheric Latvian music, beautifully performed by Atvars Lakstigala and the Liepaja Symphony Orchestra. Don’t hesitate!”
