Peteris Plakidis

born: 1947
country: Latvia

Peteris Plakidis is an almost exact contemporary of Peteris Vasks and both composers share a strong affinity with the meditative power of nature and the distinct character of Latvian folk music. Like Maskats, Plakidis also studied at the Latvian Academy of Music and went on to work in musical theatre. Since 1974 he has been a professor of composition at the Latvian Academy of Music. His choral music, which includes many arrangements of traditional folk songs, embraces both dramatic expression and lyrical intimacy.
