Museum of Applied Arts and Design, Vilnius
Raimondas Butvila and Zecharia Plavin

FELIX MENDELSSOHN-BARTHOLDY – Sonata for violin and piano, Op. 4 in F minor; Sonata for violin and piano in F major (first version, 1838)

ZECHARIA PLAVIN – Weidberg prelude for violin and piano; Weidberg Sonatina for violin and piano; Barbora Radvilaitėtonal piece for violin and piano

The museum’s historical domes will be the setting for a meeting of two seasoned stage partners and friends – Raimondas Butvila, a violinist who returned to Lithuania from Venezuela, and Israeli pianist Zecharia Plavin. “Quite a long time ago, when Raimondas and myself were nine years old, I came to visit him in the then Soviet Vilnius. He put on for me Mendelssohn’s Concerto for violin and orchestra recorded by Jascha Heifetz. Raimondas was already very well familiar with it, while for me it turned to be a surprising flight into unknown vistas. I wont exaggerate by saying that Mendelssohn connected our lives and prompted the development of our creative friendship. This friendship encouraged me to write a number of opuses, while Raimondas was generous enough to perform them with me”, relates Plavin about the idea for this concert. Concert programme features both the latest works by this pianist, musicologist and composer of wide horizons – “friendly portraits” of their mutual friend composer Ron Weidberg, and also Barbora Radvilaitė, a musical essay based on functional harmony.
