An energetic and distinctive ensemble, prize-winner of many international competitions and recipient of the Lithuanian Government prize for arts and culture, the FortVio Piano Trio celebrates its tenth anniversary this year. Demonstrating vigorous spirit and artistic excellence of the highest level, the Trio always has something to please and delight its audiences by offering musical delicacies simply not to be missed. This time the first half of their programme is dedicated to French impressionists. The stunningly beautiful and highly demanding Piano Trio by Maurice Ravel is very rarely performed in Lithuania. Compositions by Claude Debussy and Jurgis Juozapaitis share the same title – Clair de lune, or Moonlight. To round off their appearance the ensemble will perform the exuberant, passionate Cuatro Estaciones Porteñas by the innovator of Argentinean tango, Ástor Piazzolla, heralding the festive season.
