Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra
Artistic Director, Conductor and Soloist Sergej Krylov (violin, Italy)

Program: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Niccolò Paganini

Only once in a year or, more precisely, in their very last days the citizens of Klaipėda have an opportunity to listen to the violin virtuoso Sergej Krylov along with Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra under his guidance. This year's program “Festive Caprices” includes pieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and  Niccolò Paganini. An exceptional relation exists among the latter and Krylov himself. At the Kremona Music Academy (Italy) violinist studied with the world-famous musician Salvatore Accardo who had examined and performed all the works of Paganini. With the experience of tutor Krylov got an opportunity of better acquaintance with performance subtlety of pieces by Italian virtuoso. He played a lot of his music, including the 5th concerto, difficult to perform even for the best musicians. The audience will be given a chance to hear few transcriptions of Paganini caprices made for violin and orchestra and symphonies by W. A. Mozart. We are sure that “Festive Caprices” will give You a lot of memorable moments.
