Lauma and Baiba Skride's lunchtime programme includes a beguiling suite of pieces by their fellow Latvian, Peteris Vasks. The changing moods and sultry lyricism of his Little Summer Music serve as a broad bridge between the melodic charms of Sibelius's Op. 78 and the dark intensity of Nielsen's Violin Sonata No. 2 in G minor.
