Water, in all its myriad of moods. Just imagine...the sea, waves reflecting the shimmering silver and gold of the sun's rays - a babbling brook, its bed bejewelled with iridescent stones - deep water radiating a soft, serene, blue light - rain drops falling from a pallid sky like tears shed by a heart rent with sorrow... Communication with the audience, as well as talen tfor creating a special concert atmosphere have taken the young Latvian pianist Arta Arnicane to a large variety of performance venues across the world. Her quality of winning listeners' full attention, combined with the warmth and intelligence of her programmes and interpretations, allows her to fascinate both small gatherings and large audiences in concert halls such as the Rudolfinum, Prague and the Zurich Tonhalle.
