Andris Dzenītis "Octagon" ( 21/03/2019 )


A new cycle
"Octagon" for piano by Andris Dzenītis has been released!
"This cycle of piano works unites the contrasting impressions of the colours and energy of my homeland with the culture, nature and spirituality of Greece, which I absorbed during my wanderings there, in the hot month of July. Eight parts of this work comprise seven miniatures gathered around a noticeably larger, more sonata-like, energetic opus. One can compare these pieces to small, warm, coloured hill: full of varied emotions, worldviews and characters, each one is compared with the majestic castle, an entity rarely associated with positive emotions. ... Although the cycle is intended as a whole and its parts are to be played in the order shown, they can also be payed as stand-alone pieces.
The opus is dedicated to the wonderful pianist Reinis Zariņš." /Andris Dzenītis/

Latvian Composers for the Centenery of Latvia ( 14/06/2018 )


"Latvian Composers for the Centenary of Latvia" has been released!
As Latvia's centenary drew near, the artistic director and head conductor of State Choir Latvia - Māris Sirmais - revealed an idea for a gift to Latvia: to make a creative laboratory in which Latvian composers would create new a capella pieces for mixed choir. As a result, inspired by the idea 77 composers wrote songs for mixed choir. State Choir Latvia collected, rehearsed and performed the works over the course of three years and five concerts. This new repertoire would be relevant not only during Latvia's celebrated anniversary, but also for many years after the grand festivities.
This publication contains the sheet music of 19 choral works and a list of all the songs created in the creative laboratory, and the sheet music of all the pieces will soon be available in Musica Baltica.
