Andrius Žlabys (piano, Lithuania / USA)
Programme: Johann Sebastian Bach



Grammy-nominated pianist Andrius Žlabys, one of the most internationally acclaimed and gifted Lithuanian musicians of his generation, is to return to Klaipėda once again. Born in Vilnius, Lithuania, and trained in the U. S. at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, Cleveland Institute of Music and Yale School of Music, he has received acclaim for his appearances with many of the world‘s leading orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Rotterdam Symphony, and Philharmonic Orchestra of Buenos Aires. His “extraordinary refinement and artistry” (The New York Sun) ushered him into the world’s major concert venues, which since his recital debut at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York have included Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Buenos Aires’ Teatro Colón, London’s Wigmore Hall, Vienna’s Musikverein and Tokyo’s Suntory Hall. He has also appeared at numerous festivals both in the U.S. and abroad.
 
“I can hardly imagine my life without Johann Sebastian Bach,” said Žlabys on more than one occasion. That he holds a special reverence to Bach is no secret to the audiences in Klaipėda too. In his October recital at the Klaipėda Concert Hall he will perform the Baroque master’s English Suites for keyboard.
