On the 25th anniversary of Latvian Radio 3 “Classic”, the national record company SKANi releases a special series of 25 digital albums, in which the works of 25 Latvian composers recorded from 1963 to 2018 are collected in a new quality. Until now, the phonograms have been stored in radio archives in the format of magnetic tapes and are now carefully restored, digitized, cleaned of noise and magnetic damage accumulated over time by the hands of its experienced sound directors Normunds Slava, Varis Kurmins and Modris Berzins.

The twenty-second album in the series is dedicated to the work of composer Peteris Vasks and is available on all music streaming and download platforms.
