The 2008 concert season is very intensive for the Čiurlionis Quartet for the ensemble celebrates its 40th anniversary. Last season the Quartet toured in Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Bulgaria, appeared in Dresdner Musikfestspiele in Germany, and enjoyed enthusiastic reviews after the performance with young talented Swiss clarinettist Karin Dornbusch.

This time the Quartet will collaborate with Eddy Vanoosthuyse, another celebrated European clarinettist. The two partners will give Lithuanian premiere to the Quintet by Belgian Piet Swerts, and indulge the audience with the Clarinet Quartet by Viennese Franz Anton Hoffmeister.
