ISAAC ALBÉNIZ– Suite for string quartet Spain
JUAN CRISOSTOMO DE ARRIAGA – String quartet No. 3 in E-flat major

The Vilnius String Quartet opens its new concert season with Spanish music and poetry in Trakai Castle. Isaac Albéniz (1860–1909), one of the foremost Spanish composers and pianists of the time, composed manly miniatures, which he combined into suites. This concert programme features his five-movement suite Spain (Asturias, Cádiz, Córdoba, Mallorca, Sevilla) arranged for string quartet by Werner Thomas-Mifune. Juan Crisóstomo de Arriaga (1806–1826), a Basque violinist and composer who died very young (10 days before his 20th birthday), is often dubbed Spanish Mozart. In fact, the latter and Beethoven were his greatest inspirers. In addition, actor Tauras Čižas will treat the audience to the lyrics of poet Federico García Lorca (1898–1936).
