Vykintas Baltakas June Performances in Germany & the UK, plus a New Album!

On Thursday 23 June Vykintas Baltakas’ Cladi III (2021) for ensemble and electronics will be performed by LENsemble Vilnius and the Bremer Lautsprecher Orchester in Kulturkirche St. Stephani, Bremen.

A gigantic landscape of loudspeakers and musicians is spread over the entire concert hall in this unusual concert. The audience is situated in the middle of it and perceives 34 loudspeaker sculptures that, like musicians, have their own music stands and note parts. Sit down on a musician’s seat and listen to the Lithuanian Ensemble Network – 17 musicians scattered around the hall together with three singers, and often wandering. At the end of the concert, the audience can actively participate. This project is an international cooperation of the Lithuanian ensemble network and the german Bremen Loudspeaker Orchestra with the support of the International Coproduction Fund of the Goethe-Institut and Lithuanian Council for Culture

Cladi III will be performed by LENsemble Vilnius and the Bremen Loudspeaker Orchestra, with solo voices of Monta Martinsone Krukauskas , Saulė Šerytė and Nora Petročenko, directed by Vykintas Baltakas.

Also on Thursday 23 June Vykintas’ Cladi IV (2022) for solo accordion will receive its World Premiere at the Angela Burgess Recital Hall in London.

Cladi IV is one of the 200 PIECES – a collection of 200 solo pieces commissioned to celebrate the bicentenary of the Royal Academy of Music London in 2022.

On Saturday 25 June Vykintas Baltakas’ Incantatio (2019) for voice solo will be performed by Irene Kurka at Church of the Jesuits Saint Peter in Cologne, Germany.
