The Embassy of Lithuania and the Lithuanian Culture Institute invites locals to a concert in “BLACKMORE’S Berlins Musikzimmer” (Warmbrunner Straße 52, 14193 Berlin) on June 14, 2019.

David Geringas (Cello) and the Blackmore quintet play musical pieces from Anatolijus Šenderovas, Eduardas Balsys, Max Bruch, Vidmantas Bartulis, Robert Schumann and Peter Tschaikovski. The concert is dedicated to the composer Anatolijus Šenderovas, who passed away on March 25, 2019.

Anatolijus Šenderovas was one of the most famous composers from Lithuania. His music has distinctly recognizable sound and includes elements of both archaic Oriental music and more abstract atonal style. The composer did not adhere to a single method of composition, but he chose particular appropriate composing techniques for every new piece. Šenderovas focused mainly on sacred themes, using stories and texts from the Old and New Testament in Hebrew and Latin.

His music is indispensable in the European new music context and is often performed by Lithuanian musicians and also by artists from other countries.
