The Baltic Sea Philharmonic turns ten years old today. On 4 June 2008 we gave our first concert, in the Latvian capital Riga, on the occasion of the Summit of the Council of the Baltic Sea States. Our second concert came just a few months later, on 21 September, when we opened the Usedom Music Festival.
If you missed out on tickets for either tour, or came to a concert and want to relive the experience, then you’ll be pleased to know that live recordings of our ‘Baltic Folk’ and ‘Waterworks’ performances are available online.
One of the highlights of the ‘Waterworks’ tour was a special encore at the Elbphilharmonie concert of Arvo Pärt’s Kuus kuus kallike (Lullaby Song), in which the orchestra collaborated with the girls choir Mädchenchor Hamburg.
Berlin artist Philipp Geist is the man behind the mesmerising projection art of ‘Waterworks’. With more than 21 years’ experience of creating large-scale installations, exhibitions and audio-visual projects across the world, he is no stranger to working with innovative orchestras and musicians.
After the excitement of ‘Baltic Folk’, Kristjan and the orchestra dived straight into the second part of this year’s ‘Waterworks’ tour.
