Curonian Spit Festival 2019
The first Curonian Spit International Chamber Music Summer Festival was held in Neringa on the initiative of Prof. Algirdas Vizgirda in August 1999. Since then it has become an important milestone in the region’s cultural development.
The principal aim of the Curonian Spit Festival is to present the most outstanding musical masterpieces of the past and contemporary works by composers from the Baltic region during the peak of summer holiday season in Lithuania’s seaside resorts, which is closely aligned with the Lithuanian cultural policy in the field of national regional development.
The Musica Humana Ensemble of the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society, under the artistic leadership of Prof. Algirdas Vizgirda, has been the festival’s resident company ever since its inception. In its annual programmes, the festival also features renowned Lithuanian and foreign soloists, ensembles and choirs. Exquisite musical performances given by the finest musicians in the pristine setting of Neringa unchangeably draw favourable critical response and crowded halls.
