The first programme in the series “Rites for the Orchestra,” initiated by the artistic director of the Klaipėda Chamber Orchestra, Mindaugas Bačkus, was introduced two years ago at the “Music of Changes” festival. Bačkus states: “It is dedicated to music that involves not only auditory but also participatory element. The idea is to relate different modes of expression that would enhance the overall perception of music.”
Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet by cult British composer Gavin Bryars is a work of tremendous emotional power capable of overcoming even the most sceptical listener. The recorded hypnotic chanting of an old homeless man in London will be accompanied live by the string orchestra and the harp, performed by Liucilė Vilimaitė.
Four Marys for string orchestra by renowned American avant-garde composer Julia Wolfe and Arvo Pärt’s Fratres, one of the most performed works by the most performed living composer in the world, in which Linas Valickas will play the solo violin part, will veil the audience in the subtle aura of sounds. Mindaugas Bačkus, who is renowned as an ebullient performer, will play the solo cello part in Jurgis Juozapaitis’ piece Visions.
The second programme of “Rites for the orchestra” will also feature the Saga by Julius Andrejevas, The last piece by the composer who passed away a couple of years ago will be performed by pianist Daumantas Kirilauskas It will bring back the memories of the recent past.
