Performed by Normunds ?nē (English horn) & the Sinfonietta Riga. "Peteris Vasks' early style owed much to the aleatoric experiments of Lutoslawski, Penderecki and Crumb. Later works include elements of Latvian folk music, such as his gentle and pastoral English horn 'Concerto of 1989' and the powerful 'Viatore' for string orchestra. Currently living in Riga as a freelance composer, Vasks feels strongly about environmental issues and a sense of nature -- both pristine and destroyed -- can be found in many of his works. This disc features a sampling of his instrumental music, played by Normunds ?nē and the Sinfonietta Riga."
