The most popular and latest songs by Mikalojus Novikas

Mikalojus Novikas, a composer and pedagogue, one of the foremost composers of Lithuanian pop songs, is celebrating his 80th anniversary. He has written about 500 works of different genres, but is best known for his pop songs, which are still performed in concerts as well as on the radio and are popular with the general public. His songs such as Gera, Žalioj stotelėje, Putinai, Pėdos and Dar nežinia are considered to be the golden treasury of the Lithuanian pop music. Tonight’s concert features M. Novikas’ most popular and new songs presented by Jazz Island Ensemble founded by the composer’s son – also a composer, arranger and performer Artūras Novikas. It is a well-known professional ensemble, performing music of various genres in a multi-voice a cappella manner. Jazz Island is considered to be the best Lithuanian vocal ensemble; is a recipient of a number of the highest awards in competitions; regularly represents Lithuania at various important international events at home and abroad.

In the concert of M. Novikas’ songs Jazz Island joins forces with A. Novikas Jazz School and its teacher, pianist Edgar Sabilo. A graduate of the Gnesin Academy in Russia and the Groningen Academy of Music in the Netherlands, Sabilo formed the Edgar Sabilo International Quartet, which collaborates with many a Lithuanian and international performer.
