100 YEARS WITH PIAF

The programme highlights crossing of boundaries between classical and popular music, characteristic of the age of Edith Piaf. Well renowned pieces, such as La vie en rose, Milord, Non, je ne regrette rien and lesser known songs from the last years of Edith Piaf’s life, for example Les blouses blanches, Emporte-moi, are juxtaposed with compositions by Ravel, Satie, Debussy and Stravinsky, and the concert explores links between chanson and various theatrical forms. Concert is performed by world-wide known Latvian musicians – Katrina Gupalo (piano, mezzo-soprano) and Andrejs Osokins (piano).
