Long Latvian weekends: top orchestras headline Riga-Jurmala Festival
Even if they host events in a number of venues, most classical music festivals in the world are based in a single town or city. Not so Riga–Jurmala. As the name implies, this festival – inaugurated only last summer – takes place both in the Latvian capital city of Riga and in the country’s flagship seaside resort of Jurmala. These two stunning locations share some twenty concerts based around four weekends in July and August.

Scholars are puzzled why Liszt decided to abandon his drafts.
