As the Elbphilharmonie's titular organist, Iveta Apakalna has been playing her way into the hearts of Hamburg music lovers since the concert hall was opened. The successful musician also attaches importance to presenting compositions from her native Latvia, such as »Early in the Morning« by Imants Zemzaris. The composer's atmospheric style has her pulling seductively bright stops on the organ.
Incidentally, Iveta Apkalna played this work in an open-air concert on Riga beach in the summer of 2020; the concert, entitled »Sunrise«, began at 6 in the morning
