Concluding its first decade and entering the teen years, chamber orchestra  Sinfonietta Rīga in its season closing concert offers a buffet of musical styles. The classical tradition and excerpt from the dashing Don Juan's aria will be presented by Joseph Haydn's first London symphony; the restless, tormented romantic soul will be exquisitely drawn by the Grande Allegro in the spirit of Mendelssohn's violin concerto by the Italian Giovanni Bottesini, dubbed 'the double bass Paganini'; the American Steve Reich will nod to the ancient Jewish Torah chants in his stirring, meandering opus “Eight Lines”; and in the perfect symmetries of the “travel music” by John Adams we will be able to notice the motifs of boogie-woogie, pop and minimalist rock.
