Discover the programme

What is our Baltic music like today? What names come to mind when you hear Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian music? What do we know about ourselves and others through piano music and what message do we bring to the world?

The concert pianist Eglė Andrejevaitė gives her answers in her solo programme called BALTIC AMBER (lithuanian version – 9 LOBIAI). 9 composers (3 from each of the country) and their works present unity and differences, individual themes and history before, during and after the independence of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia.

Lithuania is represented by works by the “cautious radical” Giedrius Kuprevičius, the emotional Julius Andrejevas and the “texture wizard” Žibuoklė Martinaitytė. The chosen works are separated by 20 years. The country’s history through amazing latvian landscape scenery is represented by world-renowned composer Pēteris Vasks, Selga Mence’s work in the style of aleatoric music and the opus by Ēriks Ešenvalds recognised especially for his choral compositions. Estonians – Arvo Pärt, Urmas Sisask and Tõnu Kõrvits opens up the new possibilities of melodies and harmonies: re-thinking (human) life, expanding ideas, reflecting the stars and constellations.

The programme is commissioned by the “New Music Encounter Plus 2023” festival in Brno, The Czech Republic.
