Winter Classics for Orchestra and Oboe

ŽIBUOKLĖ MARTINAITYTĖ – „Nunc stans. Nunc fluens“ for percussion and strings (premiere, 2020)
RICHARD STRAUSS – Concerto for oboe and small orchestra in D major, AV 144, TrV 292
WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART – Symphony No. 39 in E flat major, KV 543


At the very beginning of winter, the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra will share the stage with Pijus Paškevičius, the young oboist, winner of various competitions, and Pavel Giunter, one of the most acclaimed Lithuanian percussionists. The musicians will be led by conductor Vilmantas Kaliūnas from Germany, whom our audiences have already applauded in the past.

New York-based composer Žibuoklė Martinaitytė admits that the title of her new work came from Boethius’ Latin dictum “Nunc fluens facit tempus. Nunc stans facit aeternitatum ”, which translates into English as “The now that passes produces time, the now that remains produces eternity”. This idea of ​​possible different experience of the present – one passing and the other standing still – resonated greatly with the current period of the virus pandemic.

Richard Strauss composed the Concerto for oboe and small orchestra in D major in Switzerland, in the last years of his life. It is an example of his late creative method, which is little known to us, and is characterized by the classical clarity of the expression means and form. Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 in E flat major, KV 543 together with symphonies No. 40 and 41 (the latter known as Jupiter) form the triptych of the Viennese classicist’s last symphonies, and they were all composed surprisingly quickly in the summer of 1788.
