The Synaesthesis contemporary music ensemble and its conductor Karolis Variakojis return to the “Music of Changes”! It will present the programme entitled “Vortex Temporum” that focuses on the French music.
 
The first half of the programme opens with the sonic journey of Dominykas Digimas, accompanied with visual compositions of images from Paris by director Kristijonas Dirsė. The journey will continue through the imaginary soundscapes created by Sylvain Marty and Régis Campo. The second half of the programme will immerse into the colourful ocean on Gérard Grisey’s Vortex Temporum.
 
“To hear Grisey’s music is to have adventures in the stuff of sound that will change your ears for ever,” wrote The Guardian about the work of one of the most influential composers in the second half of the 20th century. Raw and at the same time refined, rigorously structured and full of untamed energy, Vortex Temporum is Grisey’s magnum opus for six musicians, completed just two years before his death in 1998. His meditation on sound and time served as a testament whose initial motif of four notes is based on a flute solo from Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé.
 
Established eight years ago and awarded an honourable title of the Vilnius City Ensemble and support from the Vilnius Municipality last year, Synaesthesis is an active participant of the local music life, recently making its first steps into the international scene. The audiences are attracted and captivated by the ensemble’s professionalism, openness towards various forms of artistic synthesis, sincere interpretations of diverse works from both classical and experimental traditions. We already had an opportunity to experience this a couple of years ago when the Synaesthesis made its debut at the Klaipėda Concert Hall.
