Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra
Artistic Director Mindaugas Bačkus
Soloist Lukas Geniušas (piano, Lithuania / Russia)
Programme: Joseph Haydn, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Dmitry Shostakovich, Benjamin Britten
The opening concert “Classical Fountains” will immerse you in the sounds of piano and string instruments. Once again, pianist Lukas Geniušas will share the stage with the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra. Concert itineraries of this highly gifted and promising virtuoso have extended far beyond the boundaries of Europe. His artistic biography boasts victories at the most important international piano competitions, such as Silver Medals awarded at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw and Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, which led to appearances with the major orchestras and evening-length recitals. This time he returns to Lithuania from concerts in Singapore and Japan where he appears with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and the Japan Philharmonic Orchestra, and then he will travel to Paris where he is bound to appear with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France.
Lukas Geniušas, who holds dual citizenship and represents Lithuanian and Russian cultures, has once revealed: “Coming back to Lithuania always feels like home to me. I’ve felt like that since childhood and, I’m sure, this feeling will stay with me forever.”
In Klaipėda, we have already witnessed Lukas’s solo appearances, as piano duo with his father, Petras Geniušas, and as soloist with the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra. In the upcoming programme he will perform classical pieces from the 18th and 20th centuries by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn, Dmitry Shostakovich and Benjamin Britten.
