LATVIAN RADIO CHOIR

The Latvian Radio Choir (LRC) ranks among the top professional chamber choirs in Europe. Working under the leadership of Sigvards Kᶅava and conductor Kaspars Putniņš, the choir is renowned for its tonal finesse and range of expression.

The repertoire of the LRC ranges from the Renaissance to the most sophisticated modern scores. It could be described as a sound laboratory – the singers explore their skills by turning to the mysteries of traditional singing, as well as to the art of quartertone and overtone techniques.

The LRC has participated in the top musical forums in Salzburg and Montpellier, the Baltic Sea Festival, Klangspuren Festival, La Musica, the Venice Biennale; and performed in renowned concert halls such as the Concertgebouw and Muziekgebouw in Amsterdam, the Cité de la musique in Paris, and the Lincoln Center in New York.

The LRC has collaborated with conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Heinz Holliger, Lars Ulrik Mortensen and many others. The choir has been widely recorded and has an extensive discography.
