Lithuanian born cellist and conductor, a recipient of the Lithuanian National Culture and Art Prize David Geringas is one of today’s most versatile artists whose repertoire spans from early baroque to contemporary (including Lithuanian) compositions. He has initiated many a new Lithuanian opus later performed on the world’s concert stages and in various festivals. German record label Dreyer-Gaido released a double CD The Sound of Lithuania featuring contemporary compositions along with Geringas’ initiated recording of seldom performed Lithuanian music composed before and after IIWW. The cellist’s vast discography features opuses by Anatolijus Šenderovas, Osvaldas Balakauskas and Vytautas Laurušas among other Lithuanian composers. Geringas intensive concert itineraries bring him to diverse joined projects with musicians in Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda. Geringas is also known as a conductor collaborating with various orchestras in the western and eastern major music centres.

Having introduced a unique programme with pianist Ian Fountain at the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Hall in the beginning of March, Geringas returns again with a solid orchestral programme. As a conductor and soloist with the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra he presents Czech romanticist Antonín Dvořák’s compositions. One of them was arranged by composer Anatolijus Šenderovas, a recipient of the Lithuanian National Prize and the European Composer’s Prize. The concert programme also features Šenderovas’ opuses: Chamber symphony (Third string quartet) and Song and Dance for cello and strings. The latter’s title reveals genric contrasts characteristic of the composer’s musical vocabulary: the song is associated with sacred element and meditation, while dance – with spontaneity and rhythm. Stemming from the Third string quartet (2015), which, according to the composer, is “a five-movement symphony for four”, the Chamber symphony is constructed from instrumental solo episodes, energetic outbursts, contrasts, which give a new voice to sincere naturalness and genuineness.
