‘Composing is an essential part of my music and guitar performance – a way to tell stories and emotions through musical notation. Nobody else can compose my pieces for me. It’s the moment of the trinity – Me, the Music and the Listener – when this special interchange happens. It takes a lot but it gives even more back. It is my calling, my passion through which anything is possible’ says Mārcis Auziņš
The programme will contain pieces by Pat Metheny and original pieces of Mārcis Auziņš written for the Latvian Radio Big Band.
