The ninth Jūrmala Festival, the grandest musical event of the summer, will take place with ten magnificent concerts from 15 to 23 July at Dzintari Concert Hall, bringing together outstanding Latvian and foreign musicians.
On 19 July, the virtuoso accordion diva Ksenija Sidorova will perform at the Jūrmala Festival together with the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra and its principal conductor Guntis Kuzma. Ksenija Sidorova has become a global ambassador for her instrument, reaching audiences around the world with her artistry and personal charm. Hailed as a “discoverer” (New York Times) with “breathtaking virtuosity” (The Observer), Ksenija Sidorova has become one of the world’s prominent accordion virtuosos, and her intelligently considered, carefully crafted programmes have brought a whole new level of appreciation for the accordion, hitherto known as an instrument of folk music.
