Concert organised in collaboration with the National Museum Palace of the Grand Dukes of Lithuania.
Concert is a part of the International Marco Scacchi Early Music Festival.
Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Igor Stravinskij, Arvo Pärt, Arturs Maskats
Tonight the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra collaborates with violinist Hugo Ticciati. Arvo Pärt described the British-born young performer as being “endowed with a rare ability to convey a profound understanding of the music and shed light on its spiritual intent”. Ticciati is admired for his intellectual approach to music, which stems from his interest in literature, philosophy and even meditation. Just in recent season the violinist’s concert appearances in the world’s most prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York, Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Symphony Hall in Chicago, King’s Palace and Wigmore Hall in London and Muziekgebouw aan’t IJ in Amsterdam featured most varied repertoire spanning from J.S. Bach to Schnittke; also premieres of works by Tobias Broström, Sergei N. Jevtushenko and Albert Schnelzer. Tonight’s programme was generated by Ticciati.
German cellist Julian Arp performs as a soloist and chamber musician, takes part in various music festivals including Schleswig-Holstein, Rheingau, Montreux, Oxford, Beethovenfest in Bonn, SoNoRo in Bucharest, etc. The cellist leads master classes; is a faculty member at the University of Music and Performing Arts in Graz.
