Publikum und Presse bescheinigen der lettischen Geigerin Laura Zarina (*1987) „ein Höchstmass an Musikalität“ sowie „einen leuchtend schönen Ton, „schlank, aber charaktervoll und im richtigen Moment von bestechender Intensität

 

2023 spielte Laura Zariņa das Violinkonzert von lettisch-kanadischen Komponisten I. Raminsh zum ersten mal in Europa.

 

2022 brachte Laura Zarina das Kunstvideo mit der längsten Fuge für Violine solo (C-Dur) von J. S. Bach auf Youtube heraus. Auf experimentelle Weise übernahm Laura Zarina den Geigenpart und sang selbst die von Prof. Helga Thoene entdeckten diversen Choräle in vier Stimmen ein.

 

2019 veröffentlichte Laura Zarina das Violinkonzert des lettisch- kanadischen Komponisten Janis Kalnins (1904-2000) bei Canadian Music Centre. Das Werk wurde auf der Flucht am Ende des zweiten Weltkriegs geschrieben und galt für fast 50 Jahre als verschwunden. Diese CD-Aufnahme ist die Ersteinspielung, die nach der Erstaufführung in Heimatland Lettland von Laura Zarina auch aufgenommen wurde.

The public and the press attest to the Latvian violinist Laura Zarina "a high degree of musicality" and "a radiantly beautiful tone", "slim, but full of character and at the right moment of captivating intensity“.

 

In 2023, Laura Zarina played the European premiere of the violin concerto by latvian-canadian composer I. Raminsh (*1943).

 

In 2022, Laura Zarina published the art video with the longest fugue for solo violin (C major) by J. S. Bach on YouTube. In an experimental way, Laura Zarina took over the violin part and sang the various chorales discovered by Prof. Helga Thoene in four voices.

 

In 2019, Laura Zarina released the violin concerto by the Latvian-Canadian composer Janis Kalnins (1904-2000) with Canadian Music Centre. The work was written while fleeing at the end of the Second World War and was thought to have disappeared for almost 50 years. This CD recording is the first recording, which was also recorded by Laura Zarina after the first performance in her home country Latvia.

Publika un prese ir vienisprātis – latviešu vijolniecei Laurai Zariņai (*1987) ir raksturīga „augstākās klases muzikalitāte“ un „mirdzošs tonis“ – „slaids, bet ar savu raksturu, kas vajadzīgajā  brīdī pārsteidz ar savu augsto intensitāti“.

 

2023. gada rudenī Laura Zariņa kopā ar Liepājas simfonisko orķestri un diriģentu Māri Sirmo atskaņoja Latvijas un Eiropas pirmatskanojumu komponista Imanta Ramiņā vijoļkoncertam. Autorkoncerts, godinot komponista 80. jubileju, tika ierakstīts Latvijas Radio tiešraidē.

 

2022. gadā Laura Zariņa ierakstīja mākslas video ar garāko J.S. Baha fūgu vijolei solo (do mažorā) un publicēja to Youtube kanālā. Uzdrošinoties eksperimentēt, Laura Zariņa ierakstīja vijoles partiju un pati iedziedāja četrbalsīgos korāļus, ko profesore Helga Thoene savu zinātnisko pētījumu ietvaros bija atradusi Baha vijoles solodarbos. 

 

2019. gadā Laura Zariņa ierakstīja un publiskoja Kanādā dzīvojošā latviešu izcelsmes komponista Jāņa Kalniņa (1904-2000) vijoles koncertu mūzikas izdevniecībā Canadian Music Centre. Šis skaņdarbs tika sarakstīts bēgļu gaitās Otrā pasaules kara beigās un gandrīz 50 gadus tika uzskatīts par pazudušu. Šis kompaktdiska ieraksts ir šī skaņdarba pirmais ieskaņojums,  ko Laura Zariņa ierakstīja Kanādā pēc pirmatskaņojuma komponista dzimtajā Latvijā.

„…it is necessary to mention solo violinist Laura Zariņa, who has all the abilities characteristic of an exceptionally gifted musician – a clean, rich, multi-faceted sound; understanding with respect to the appropriate style, character and content; and a cultivated virtuosity, artistic taste and intuition."
