Last autumn pianist Birutė Vainiūnaitė, a winner of the 1st M.K. Čiurlionis Piano Competition (Vilnius) and the 14th Virtuoso Competition in Berlin, ardent advocate of French music, Professor of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, recorded Preludes by Claude Debussy. In the past the pianist has recorded the composer’s Images as part of the “Great Lithuanian Artists” series.

“I look at Debussy’s score in the same way as at the painting; I read it like a novel. It contains so much information. Debussy’s music is lifelike,” says Vainiūnaitė. For her recital she chose the piano works by her favourite French and Lithuanian composers.
