Ar zvaigžņu kluso gaismu

Ar zvaigžņu kluso gaismu (‘Silent starlight’) is dedicated both to those who perished in the collapse of a suburban Rīga supermarket and to their families. Fifty-four people lost their lives in the tragedy that took place on 21 November 2013. I came to the realization that it was impossible for me as a composer to remain silent in the face of this disaster.

The work is written in two parts that are linked by the voice of the kokle, the Latvian psaltery. In mythological understanding the kokle is built of wood that holds the soul of a departed person. Some scholars link the kokle with funeral traditions.
