Active for more than three decades, Vilniaus arsenalas Ensemble invites to a concert in an authentic setting of the Old Arsenal. The musicians program music by young Beethoven and two 20th-century composers: Astor Piazzolla, the champion of Argentinean Tango, and Jean Françaix, the French neo-classicist.
To this day having given over 1000 concerts in Lithuania and abroad, Vilniaus arsenalas remains faithful to its concert format offering combinations of the core repertoire of chamber music and the latest contemporary opuses. The Ensemble initiates the latter works in collaboration with the Lithuanian Composers’ Union.
This afternoon the audience will be presented with a new opus by Antanas Kučinskas.
