About the Event
"Lonely Angel" is the name of the meditation for violin and strings by the Latvian tone poet Pēteris Vasks. For Vasks, the starting point was the vision of an angel flying over the world, pondering the state of the earth with tears in his eyes. But an almost imperceptible loving touch of his wings provides hope and healing. This guardian angel is the starting point for Musica Divina 2023's festival story: Caring for each other.
