MIKALOJUS KONSTANTINAS ČIURLIONIS – Five preludes for strings; Variations on a theme of Lithuanian folksong Bėkit, bareliai (Run, You Fields), VL 279
WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART – Concerto for violin and orchestra No. 3 in G major, KV 216; Concerto for violin and orchestra No. 5 in A major, KV 219
ARVO PÄRT – Orient & Occident

The Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra and its Artistic Director and Conductor violinist Sergej Krylov commence the celebration of the centenary of the re-establishment of Lithuanian statehood. In addition to Mozart’s Violin concertos, performed by Krylov, and Arvo Pärt’s Orient & Occident the concert programme includes Lithuanian music: M. K. Čiurlionis’ Five preludes for strings (Grave. Tranquillo. Andante. Con moto. Lento) and variations on a theme of Lithuanian folksong Bėkit, bareliai (Run, You Fields). This cycle of four variations “is imbued with profound beauty and purposeful diversity of expression” (Vytautas Landsbergis).

Assumingly, in his improvisations Čiurlionis would elaborate much more on the images of Bareliai, but the existing version is also a well-thought-of cycle. 

The programme includes one more Lithuanian opus – De profundis by R. Šerkšnytė, a recipient of the Lithuanian National Prize. “It is one of the most admirable works for string orchestra, overstepping the ranks of Lithuanian music“, claims conductor Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla. In 2016, Gražinytė-Tyla conducted this composition in USA and the Luzern Festival in Switzerland. De profundis has been performed more than 100 times by more than 30 orchestras around the world.
