One of the famed wagnerian bass-baritones of our age, Egils Silins, sings romantic art songs by Latvian composers in recital, accompanied by Maris Skuja.
It is a poetry of longing, an unsatisfiable longing for tranquillity, home, homeland, something unattainable and unsummonable, a longing for lost happiness and love. Emils Darzins Latvian bass-baritone Egils Silins made his Royal Opera debut in 2011 as the Dutchman (Der fliegende Holl nder). He has since returned to sing Jokanaan (Salome) for The Royal Opera. Silins studied at the Latvian Academy of Music.
