French Music Masterpieces

MARIN MARAIS – Variations on Spanish folk tune La Folia



JULES MOUQUET – La Flûte de Pan, Op. 15

MAURICE RAVEL – Pièce En Forme De Habanera

CLAUDE DEBUSSY – Prelude Prelude à l`apres-midi d`un faune, L. 86

FRANÇOIS BORNE – Fantaisie on themes from G. Bizet’s Carmen

Harp and flute duo is a rather rarely heard chamber ensemble. Harpist Aistė Baliunytė and flutist Vytenis Gurstis formed such a duo in Lithuania. Baliunytė, a member of the Lithuanian National Opera and Ballet Theatre orchestra, has earned Master Degree from Le Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris. Educated in Great Britain and Germany, Gurstis currently pursues Doctoral studies at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. The H2F Duo’s (Harp2Flute) repertoire spans from baroque to contemporary opuses. Both musicians often arrange works originally written for other instruments to be performed by their duo. This afternoon they will offer French music masterpieces spanning from Marais’ Variations on Spanish folk tune, Baliunytė’s arrangement of Gaubert’s Fantaisie to Debussy’s impressionist Prelude à l`apres-midi d`un faune and composer-harpist Andrès’ Narthex in which he employed various unorthodox techniques for both instruments.
