More Info:

The synergy on this album between three personalities - poet Inese Zandere, composer Raimonds Pauls and conductor Ints Teterovskis - has become one of the ports of call in the BALSIS Youth Choir's "river story", a special journey that it embarked on already a decade ago. Songs About Latvian Rivers features a lesser-known cycle of eight a cappella choral songs composed by Pauls with poetry by Zandere. Also special is the participation of both artists - with Pauls at the piano and Zandere reading - on "River Poetry", the last track on the album. Teterovskis is convinced that as long as Zandere continues writing about rivers and as long as young people respond to Latvian choral music, BALSIS (which means 'voices' in Latvian) will continue to flow along smaller and larger rivers to wider waters.
