Equivalent concerts conducted by Gintars Rinkevičs were recorded with great enthusiasm not only in Lithuania, but two years ago the audience greeted such a program in Liepaja with genuine applause.
“The music of these performers illuminates an entire era of music, which created the musical tastes of several generations. The largest audiences, millions of recordings sold and crowds of fans around the world – all this proves that these musicians were important elements of cultural history. Their songs became an integral part of every music lover’s life, and their lyrics are still sung by thousands of people. Not surprisingly, music critics doubt that the world will ever experience artists of this level. In this concert, listeners have the opportunity to experience it all live! ” says maestro Gintars Rinkevičs.
