Poly-stylistic programme:

“Invasion into Classical Music” and “Ethnic Project”

Part of the JAZZ AT THE PHILHARMONIC SERIES

Organised and sponsored by EFFECTUS agency

Vladimir Chekasin and Petras Geniušas, the two titans of Lithuanian music, have collaborated in a number of interdisciplinary projects, revealing the fundamental connections between classical, jazz and ethnic music. The “Ethnic Project” is one of such collaborations, whereas the “Invasion into Classical Music” was conceived by Chekasin alone. An exponent of modern jazz and a composer of poly-stylistic compositions, Chekasin invited once again the pianist Petras Geniušas, known for his versatile interests. “The highlight of this project is diversity. In the first half of the concert Petras plays from the score, while I improvise on the style of the work performed. I look at the score and play over the music, written by other composers,” says Chekasin who is determined to delve into Pärt’s, Bartók’s, Prokofiev’s and Debussy’s sound realm. In the second half of the concert the performers swap their roles. Now the saxophonist’s fantasies on Japanese themes guide piano improvisations. Petras Geniušas describes this project as ‘culturological free jazz’.
