Cello Cēsis Festival Highlights by Sinfonietta Rīga and soloists Marko Yllonen, Boris Brovtsin, Kristīne Blaumane, Mario Brunello, Gunta Ābele, Kārlis Klotiņš & Ēriks Kiršfelds features live concert performances recorded in Cēsis Concert Hall in September of 2015, 2016 & 2017. This album features select movements from works for cello and orchestra by Latvian composers Pēteris Vasks and Anitra Tumševica as well as well as Antonio Vivaldi, Johanness Brahms and Franz Schubert.

At this festival we’ve met excellent cellists and heard outstanding, unforgettable interpretations. I believe that’s the most important element of Cello Cēsis, and at each edition of the festival it brings music aficionados and professionals a new discovery or surprise. Some of these musical interpretations can be heard on this album.
