This time we introduce a new programme in the Jigsaw Puzzle for Orchestra series to be held in an extraordinary place. Once again, it will give centre stage to the musicians of the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra (KCO) appearing as soloists, including violinists Konrad Lewicki, Teodora Morta Staigė, Tomas Cinelis, and Kristina Kupšienė; violists Anna Luiza Alexandrow-Bertash and Ivan Bertash, and cellists Mindaugas Bačkus and Kornelija Kupšytė. They will demonstrate their prowess by performing some less frequently performed but truly exceptional works.

Mindaugas Bačkus, Artistic Director of the KCO, suggested to mount this programme in the newly renovated space of the Victoria Hotel in Klaipėda: “It is so exciting to discover new interesting places in town, which we haven’t tested, heard or otherwise experienced before, and in which we can fulfil our artistic ideas. The legendary Victoria Hotel Klaipėda that has been recently refurbished is one of such places featuring a skylight-covered atrium, which appears to be a perfect spot for sophisticated musical soirées.

Music is a miracle embodied in sound that can instantly transform and elevate any space. The supply of locations suitable for classical music concerts is still very limited in Klaipėda, so we are very eager to test this new place and believe that it will soon turn into a point of attraction for people looking for cultural entertainment. While the orchestra is assembling its jigsaw puzzle, a new layout of cultural spaces is taking shape in the city. I have a feeling that it’s a kind of an interactive game,” says Bačkus and invites all to attend this unusual event in an unusual setting.
