Program “Unexpected meetings”, prepared by four young, but already well-known musicians Dalia Dėdinskaitė (violin), Gleb Pyšniak (cello), Robertas Lozinskis (piano) and Marius Šinkūnas (vibraphone) will raise from the oblivion the heritage of Lithuanian Jews. According to performers, “more than 600 years Lithuanian Jews (Litvaks) have significantly contributed to the development of Lithuania and neighbour countries until the tragedy of Holocaust destroyed or forced to leave almost 95 percent of their community. Despite this, descendents of Litvaks until know are spread all over the world. There was a lot of writing and discussion about them and their works, but the best way for music to remain alive is its constant performance. In this way music reaches the heart and mind of listeners. This program is a meaningful and sincere aspiration of performers to join the past and present following the footsteps of the heritage of Lithuanian Jews. Concert's program includes works by Anatolijus Šenderovas, Aaron Copland, George Gershwin, Benny Goodman, Viačeslav Ganelin and others. As well in this evening the recording of chamber music for violin, cello, piano and vibraphone from Lithuanian or Lithuania-related Jews will be introduced.
