Both in Lithuania and in the rest of the world, there is perhaps the largest number of notable composers whose last names begin with B. Three of them will be featured in the programme presented by the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra, entitled “Bach–Beethoven–Bartulis.” The German genius of the Baroque era, one of the three great masters of the First Viennese School, and the Lithuanian composer of true theatric talent and neoromantic inclinations – three very different personalities, representing distinct historical periods and highly idiosyncratic style of writing. Musical logic and emotional depth of Bach was a major influence on young Beethoven. Vidmantas Bartulis has drawn inspiration from both; thus the aforementioned trio of composers may be united through his artistic vision. Having displayed an enormous variety of styles, manners and moods in his work, Bartulis has confessed his fondness for Beethoven in Mein lieber freund Beethoven and a soft spot for Bach in I like J. S. Bach.
In this programme, featuring three large concert pieces by three great composers, the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra will be joined by three accomplished soloists: cellist and Artistic Director of the KCO, Mindaugas Bačkus, violinist Vilhelmas Čepinskis, and pianist Motiejus Bazaras. V. Čepinskis’s created version for soloists, string orchestra and timpani, instead of a symphony orchestra.
The programme “Bach–Beethoven–Bartulis” will demonstrate a classical balance between intellect and emotion, promising a poignant and deeply touching experience.
