Rake´s Progress in Riga

It's an intense musical delight to experience Jānis Liepiņš intricate and committed reading of the score and enjoy the ability of the orchestra to embrace less familiar repertoire. The performance of the soloists is top-notch and highly engaged in the ensemble.

Die Fledermaus in Riga

The work of conductor Janis Liepins pleased immediately beginning with the overture. This chrestomatic Johann Strauss music has many hidden surprises and difficulties. The conductor has found the right balance of the tempo and character because of his recent experience as the principal conductor of ballet Raymonda. Janis Liepins feels the rhythm and tempo of this music very well and he doesn’t let the orchestra drift on their own.

La Rondine in Moscow

An important reason why everything sounded so good was definitely Janis Liepins. He conducted La Rondine in a very academic, flowing and precise manner. He did not miss any of the small details and didn't let even the most unknown elements of the whole piece drift on their own. The result did not disappoint - the performance was impressive, beautiful and it let the singers show themselves and their talent as well as their capabilities to full extent.
