To commemorate Defenders of Freedom Day this year, the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society held an evening of symphonic music with pieces by contemporary composers from the three Baltic States of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. Estonian maestro Erki Pehk stood on the rostrum of the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra, and violinist Dalia Kuznecovaitė appeared as a soloist. The musical programme featured a colourful and dynamic musical canvas, including Ülo Krigul’s Concerto for Violin, the world premiere of Arvydas Malcys’s symphony Vakarykštis pasaulis (“Yesterday’s World”), and Pēteris Vasks’s violin concerto Tālā gaisma (“Distant Light”). The 700th anniversary of Vilnius gave us the perfect opportunity to remember why we are free.
Date: 14 January 2023.
Location: Great Hall at the National Philharmonic Society building, Vilnius.
Organiser: Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society.
