Every year the Freedom Defenders Day is marked with the performance of Alfred Schnittke’s Sutartinės. This work is the composer’s response, as a compassionate humanist and the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra’s genuine friend,  to the tragic events of January 13th, 1991, in Vilnius. Other works featured on this programme will add to the contemplative mood of the occasion.

Concert organised in collaboration with the Ministry of National Defence of the Republic of Lithuania.
