“I Love Rhythm”
Guoda Gedvilaitė (piano)
Giunter Percussion Ensemble: Pavel Giunter, Tomas Kulikauskas, Sigitas Gailius

“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!
Georges Bizet, George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein, Ástor Piazzolla, Wolfgang Reifender, Louis Moreau Gottschalk, Eugene Novotney, Nikolai Kapustin, William Gillock
Evenings of Summer Music

From June 30th through July 28th, 2016, the Klaipėda Concert Hall will host its annual Summer Concert Series at the Park Stage. The roster for this year’s series presents the best of Lithuanian musical talent performing a delectable selection of summertime music – a fresh blend of classical and popular, jazz and world music influences.

Dear citizens and visitors of Klaipėda! Come and join us for nine summer evenings at our backyard park and experience the delight of listening to live music in open air, surrounded by the natural greenery. The nature’s elements – the whispering wind, the cool of summer nights, and gentle susurration of the park – will surely add some extra flavour to the strains of music and give a special ambiance to the summer evenings that you can spend with your family and friends.
