Polina Osetinskaya:
Polina Osetinskaya was born in Moscow and began performing at the age of five. She was soon acclaimed as a Wunderkind. She gave her first concert at the age of six at the Vilnius Conservatory in Lithuania and at the age of seven entered the Central School of Music of the Moscow Conservatory. Polina Osetinskaya’s onstage partners have included Maxim Vengerov, Julian Milkis, Anton Batagov and Alexander Knyazev and she has worked with conductors such as Saulius Sondeckis, Vassily Sinaisky, Andrei Boreiko, Tugan Sokhiev, Laurent Petitgirard, Yan Pascal Tortelier, Teodor Currentzis.

She appears at the world’s most important concert halls, including the Barbican in London, the St Petersburg Philharmonic, the Moscow Conservatory and the Musikverein in Vienna, as well as in Rome, Tokyo, Milan, Brussels and throughout the USA, as well as at many festivals in Europe, the USA, Russia and Mexico.

After her debut at the Salzburg Festival in 2019, she performed in triumph at Carnegie Hall, where she now performs every season. In recital, Polina Osetinskaya is known for her unusual programmers, which include works by contemporary composers juxtaposed with traditional, classical works.

Her tone is deep and rich, her articulation faultless and her feeling for the pulse of the music she is playing is as natural as breathing – that’s something that cannot be taught. » – KLASSISKMUSIKK

R1 Excursion Rundale Castle on Friday May 19, 2023

09:00 - 16:00

The 18th-century Rundāle Palace is the most outstanding example of Baroque and Rococo architecture in the entire Baltic region. Unlike many European palaces, Rundāle has preserved the stylistic integrity of its century’s architecture, as there was hardly any reconstruction or modernization in the later periods. This is also true of the landscape of the Semgallen (Lat. Zemgale) region surrounding the palace. However, the interior of the castle suffered greatly from the two world wars in the 20th century. It is only through fifty years of careful restoration and thanks to the extraordinary dedication of art historian and painter Imants Lancmanis (1941), who was also the director of the museum from 1972 to 2019, that the castle can be admired in its original splendor by interested visitors.

13:00 – 14:30             Lunch@ Mazmežotnes muiža

Mazmežotne manor and mansion – a fusion of culture, art and well-kept environment

In 1795 Charlotte von Lieven received the manor as a gift from the Russian Tsarina Catherine II. It was at this time that the construction works began. The buildings suffered considerable damage during the 1st World War. During the first years of Latvia’s state independence, the manor was managed in an exemplary manner, and in WW2 the residential building was destroyed by fire. In 2007 the restoration of the ensemble began.  Mazmežotne is located on an oxbow lake of the Lielupe River.

The manor is now used for tourism. For friends of active recreation and nature lovers also bicycle tours, boat trips, walks on the nature trail and the surrounding trails. A nature trail has been established in the vicinity of the manor, which runs along the left bank of the Lielupe River and acquaints with the natural diversity of the riverbank.

R2 Excursion Jaunmokas & Jurmala on Saturday May 20, 2023

09:00 - 16:30

Jaunmokas (New Mock) Castle was built around 1901 for the head of Riga George Armitstead as a hunting lodge and his summer residence. The castle and the horse stable were designed by the architect Wilhelm Bokslaf in 1898. Jaunmokas Castle is one of the most famous brick buildings in Latvia. The interiors were restored in the style of a hunting lodge at the end of the 20th century. The original tiled stoves are especially valuable; one of them was made at the turn of the century (19th/20th c.) for the 700th anniversary of the capital, on its tiles are depicted views and scenes of Riga and its surroundings.

Forest Museum
Nowadays, the Forest Museum is also located in the castle, where the forestry of Latvia is presented and there are expositions dedicated to hunting, as well as the Latvian Sign Center, where everyone can create their own Latvian sign. There are also herbal tea tastings, thematic tours and other events, for example, a forest linnet school or a tour for newlyweds.
