THe Beginning of the year with Mariss Jansons
75 YEARS Mariss Jansons!
To celebrate his birthday on 14th January 2018, many colleagues, friends, companions and also some subscribers did send their congratulations to Mariss Jansons.
In honour of Mariss Jansons’ 75th birthday, a new tulip will be named after him
The new tulip was created in Latvia and bred in Netherlands.
The idea to create a new tulip came from the Embassy of Latvia in Netherlands, highlighting the fact that Mariss Jansons, who was the chief conductor of The Royal Concertgebouw for 11 years, is, perhaps the most well-known Latvian in Netherlands. With the participation of the Latvian ambassador to the Netherlands Ilze Rūse, the ambassador of Netherlands to Latvia Pieter Jan Langenberg, the creator of the tulip Juris Egle (Latvia) and the breeder of the tulip Jan Pennings (Netherlands), the name “Mariss Jansons” will be officially allocated to the tulip by Aiva Rozenberga, the director of Latvian Institute.
During the ceremony, a musical greeting will be performed by another famous Latvian Maestro, Raimonds Pauls.
In 2018, Latvia celebrates its centenary, and an important part of the celebration is the international culture programme abroad. In Netherlands, it is mostly planned around Mariss Jansons’ personality.
