“Rhythm is a powerful medium that can overwhelm and capture for quite a long time,” says pianist Guoda Gedvilaitė. Last year she met percussionist Pavelas Giunteris in one project presented at the Gaida Contemporary Music Festival in Vilnius. Music brought them together, but they finally became united in love for rhythm. Gedvilaitė is distinguished from other classical pianists for her original and daring ideas about how classical music might be presented in unconventional formats. In her appearances, she often shares the stage not only with the celebrated classical performers but also with actors, ballet dancers and jazz musicians. Having mastered diverse styles of classical, modern, jazz and world music, Giunteris continues to give exhilarating performances that infect both his fellow musicians and the audience with a passion for music.
For the Summer Series Guoda and Pavelas prepare a mysterious and spellbinding show, bursting with rhythms, energy, lights, movement and unforgettable melodies. If you have a taste for Argentine tango, American jazz, Spanish temperament and Brazilian samba, it is a programme for you! Summer, Music, Rhythm!
