A double-CD set of world premiere live recordings of concerti by Latvian composers Andris Dzenītis, Kristaps Pētersons, Andris Vecumnieks, Arturs Maskats and Platons Buravickis.

The city of Liepāja commissioned twelve Latvian composers to present their reflections about Liepāja, resulting in the Liepāja Concerti. The first compilation of the Liepāja Concerti was released in 2017 on a recording published by Odradek Records (ODRCD362). The double-CD included the works by Rihards Dubra, Ēriks Ešenvalds, Juris Karlsons, Kārlis Lācis and Vilnis Šmīdbergs. The disc now presented by Skani is the second edition of the Liepāja Concerti.

In 1881 the first philharmonic orchestra in the Baltic countries was founded in Liepāja. Presently it is known under the name Liepāja Symphony Orchestra and has become a key promoter of Latvian composers’ music and initiator of creativity not only in the Kurzeme region but throughout Latvia. Since 2010 the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra has been granted the status of a national orchestra, and its chief conductor since the 2017/2018 season is Gintaras Rinkevičius.

Atvars Lakstīgala was the principal conductor of the Liepāja Symphony Orchestra from 2010 to 2017. Since 2009 he has been a regular guest conductor at the Latvian National Opera.
