“Re: Music That Was Born Yesterday”
Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra
Artistic Director Mindaugas Bačkus
Kotryna Janutaitė (voice), Donatas Bielunskis (bass guitar), Giedrius Nakas (keyboards), Augustas Baronas (drums), Leonardas Pilkauskas (saxophone, flute, clarinet)
The project “Re: Music That Was Born Yesterday” was conceived a few years ago by the flock of young jazz musicians, consisting of Leonardas Pilkauskas (saxophone, clarinet, flute), Kotryna Janutaitė (voice), Giedrius Nakas (keyboards), Donatas Bielunskis (bass) and Augustas Baronas (drums). They endeavoured to give a fresh feel to some of the most popular songs written by Lithuanian composers in the last century, such as Elektrėnų žiburiai (Lights of Elektrėnai) by Eduardas Balsys, Žvaigždutė (Little Star) by Balys Dvarionas, Senieji Vilniaus stogai (Old Roofs of Vilnius) by Mikas Vaitkevičius, Gera (It Feels Good) by Mikalojus Novikas, Pamiršk mane (Forget Me) by Igoris Berinas, etc.
The young musicians’ project has instantly drawn enthusiastic responses and now continues to travel around various venues. The project’s performance on June 30th in Klaipėda, however, will be the first of its kind. This time a jazz quintet will share the stage with the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra under the artistic leadership of Mindaugas Bačkus. Songs were specially arranged for this programme to embrace new colours of string instruments. Musicians believe that innovative interpretations of yesteryear popular tunes may bring different generations together, which happens to be perhaps the most enjoyable experience during their appearances.
