Baltic Concerti    , three concerti by Vasks, Senderovas and Juzeliunas
Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra

 Product description

Starring virtuoso violinist Dzeraldas Bidva, three concerti by Vasks, Senderovas and Juzeliunas transport the listener to Lithuania in a release which coincides with the centenary of the country's independence.

Dzeraldas Bidva interprets three Baltic concerti: two for violin and orchestra, including Peteris Vasks' Vox amoris, and one featuring organ and violin, for which Bidva is joined by the young and talented organist Karolina Juodelyte. The Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra is conducted by Modestas Pitrenas and Adrija Cepaite.

The music of Juzeliunas is steeped in Lithuanian folklore; that of Vasks has a strong sense of nature translated into sound; and that of Senderovas not only reflects dramatic experiences in Lithuania's turbulent history, but also reveals the richly multicoloured and polyethnic soundscape of the country.

This album appears in the year marking the centenary of Lithuania's restored independence. It celebrates the continuing tradition of musical art in the Baltic countries within the broader context of centuries-old European traditions.

Worth noting, to avoid any confusion, that Pēteris Vasks is Latvian, not Lithuanian.  Still Baltic of course.

Correct, though Vasks was forced - because of his father, who was a church minister in Soviet times - to study and work in neighbouring Lithuania. He's fluent in Lithuanian and has his circle of friends in Vilnius since then.

… music is not only an `entertainment’, nor a mere luxury, but a necessity of the spiritual if not of the physical life, an opening of those magic casements through which we can catch a glimpse of that country where ultimate reality will be found.  RVW, 1948
