ONUTĖ NARBUTAITĖ

La barca
riva fiume sinfonia
Symphony No. 2

Tonight’s concert, organised in collaboration with the Lithuanian Composers’ Union, is dedicated to the Lithuanian composer Onutė Narbutaitė. The programme features her most significant symphonic opuses in a rendition of the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra led by Maestro Robertas Šervenikas, a devoted promulgator of Lithuanian music.

Narbutaitė’s music bears the mark of exceptional individuality and is recognisable from the very first bars of all her compositions. In the ‘90s she has made her name as a composer of subtle chamber music. Later she turned to large-scale symphonic canvases. Besides the wide spectrum of various emotional states and feelings in Narbutaitė’s creative work what is also palpable is the sense of aristocratic moderation and a strong compositional discipline. The rationality of her composition reveals itself through meticulously detailed textures, the precise proportions of smaller and larger sections and the overall form, as well as the not immediately perceptible interplay of the minutest details. According to German critic Albrecht Thiemann, it seems that her music emerges from an embrace of intimate lucidity of chamber music expression forms, but it also possesses a perspective of gigantic orchestral and choral formations. The impact generated by Narbutaitė's works is related with quite uncommon paradoxical inner balance: their sound is both simple and complex, personal and universal, meditative and analytical.
