A few more pictures rounding off a beautiful week in Latvia with Kremerata Baltica. It was so nice to see Gidon Kremer again and this time with his band 🤟🏼. In the last concert of the festival we played a work by Latvian composer Pēteris Vasks, who happened to be in the audience. He and I chatted a bit about his solo bass works, which I’ve played and am looking forward to exploring again with some new interpretive ideas.
My suitcase is filled to the brim with hopped apple wine and Riga Balsams (and one bottle broke in transit so I’m really happy that my suitcase will smell like Latvia for a long time to come). But most importantly: thank you to my new friends for the laughs, hospitality and great music making! Next stop: Copenhagen #doublebass #kontrabass #violin #kremeratabaltica #gidonkremer
