Vintage refers to a representative of the best and the most typical. The term was coined by European winemakers, who started marking the wine made from grapes that were all, or primarily, grown and harvested in a single specified year. In today’s fashion world vintage style usually refers to outstanding quality garment the value of which rises with time.

This concert combines the new and relevant with the old, bringing forth the passion and nostalgia of the past. The programme features vintage songs – masterpieces of the representatives of Lithuanian popular music of past times (Gorbulskis, Novikas, Vilkončius, Vaitkevičius, Makačinas, Kulikauskas) arranged for 4TANGO Ensemble: Kristina Žebrauskaitė (accordion), Feliksas Zakrevskis (piano), Birutė Bagdonienė (viola), Donatas Bagurskas (double bass).  

 

4TANGO teams up with singer and flutist Neda Malūnavičiūtė. The musicians have chosen popular music classics, which sound rather theatrical or chamber-like, approaching aesthetics of sung poetry. These melodies are brought back to life from times when the song lyrics were written by true poets, and music – true composers. Born several decades ago, the songs employ sensitive but not sentimental lyrics communicating about yearning for love in a metaphorical way. Today it counterbalances the cheep glitter of popular culture.
