Vidas and I just had an awesome time in Latvia, playing 4 very different and important organs in Zlēkas Lutheran church, in Ugāle Lutheran church, in Ventspils Concert Hall "Latvia" and in Holy Trinity Cathedral in Liepāja. Today we'd like to share our August 12, 2023 recital video from Zlēkas where we had a pleasure to play a 2 manual and pedal Hermann organ from 1875. This video will be one of the first available online of this rare Romantic Latvian organ. Thanks so much to our friend Janis Kalnins for invitation and hospitality! Hope you will enjoy it!
