Suite of Stories

Works by Feliksas Bajoras, Leonas Povilaitis, Teisučis Makačinas, Mikalojus Novikas, Konstancija Bundzaitė, Benjaminas Gorbulskis 

Staged concert Suite of Stories offers a journey to a mystical world of nature; it is a magical, mysterious, enchanting story about men, animals, trees and devils. On the way you will meet a mole and cancer, will be a witness to a conversation between lark and swallow, will learn why trees do not speak and why the ash-tree is called a blind tree. You will meet a devil making tricks and a valiant shoemaker, and will learn what was happening in old-time evening-parties. Soprano, flute, piano, shadow theatre and actor Mindaugas Anicevičius will be your guides in a special journey.

The travellers will be accompanied by Suite of Stories composed by Feliksas Bajoras, a Lithuanian classic of nowadays. Written almost 50 years ago it remains to be one of the most popular and original Lithuanian compositions. The Suite is based on folk texts documented by Kazimieras Būga; in the movement about the oak tree the composer employed the folksong text. Lyrical, filled with rich nuances and humour the composition inspired young performers to develop a concert, which, we hope, will be memorable.
