We at the Klaipėda Concert Hall will have yet another chance to attend the appearance of the riveting musical family – violinist Dalia Dėdinskaitė and cellist Gleb Pyšniak. We still remember the period when they both played with the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra. Currently, they work at the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society: Gleb joined the Čiurlionis String Quartet, while Dalia was recently appointed the concertmaster of the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra.
This time they invited Estonian pianist Ralf Taal to take part in the chamber programme titled “Beethoven by the Baltic Sea,” which links the work of the Viennese classic to that of contemporary composers from the three Baltic countries. The Estonian pianist has built solid reputation for his interpretations of the 21s-century piano repertoire, as well as received accolades in several international piano competitions. According to the initiator of this programme, cellist Gleb Pyšniak, “we are going to team up with the wonderful pianist who is currently numbered among the leading Estonian performers. Since this year we mark the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven’s birth and 30th anniversary of restoration of the independence of Lithuania, we decided to perform Beethoven’s fantastic Second Symphony (to my knowledge, its version for piano trio has never been performed in Lithuania before) and combine it with the works by the Baltic composers – Pēteris Vasks,Arvo Pärt and Anatolijus Šenderovas – as a musical reflection of sorts. We will repeat the same programme in five cities across Estonia. Some time ago we have performed the chamber version of Beethoven’s Second Symphony at the Tartu festival. This concert was recorded and broadcast by the Estonian Klassika Raadio.”
