“Quietude”
Saulius Petreikis (voice, flute, trumpet, wind instruments from around the world), Vytautas Mikeliūnas (violin), Donatas Petreikis (guitar), Andrius Daugirdas (bass guitar)



Multi-instrumentalist Saulius Petreikis, his brother guitarist Donatas Petreikis, violinist Vytautas Mikeliūnas and bassist Andrius Daugirdas invite you to the isle of calm music at a concert titled “Quietude”. The concert was named after a CD that appeared recently in the catalogue of Saulės Muzika label. Recalling the process of work on his previous album “Lowlands”, Petreikis noted that compositions included in this album had a somewhat bewildering effect on his fans because of their complexity and ambitiousness, while “Tyka” (Quietude) is just what they had expected for several years. The music included in this new album is very light, upbeat, flashing with the bright colours of world music.

Saulius Petreikis was educated as a classical trumpeter at the Stasys Šimkus Conservatory in Klaipėda and the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre in Vilnius. A performer with creative ambition, he explores the ways to innovate authentic Lithuanian musical heritage and delves into ethnic music of various nations. He is also a keen collector of musical instruments from around the globe, which he uses in his performances. His music making is marked with a surprising combination of irrepressible playfulness and deep sincerity, spontaneous expression and a tendency towards synthesis of different styles and musical cultures. He is a tireless explorer of new sounds, which he discovers through continuous experimentation and improvisation. It is this particular quality that turns his concerts into a totally unpredictable experience.
World music, arising from the roots of Lithuanian, Latvian, Celtic, Armenian, Indian and other peoples’ traditional music.
