March 25, Con­cert to Mark the 90th An­niver­sary of Mstislav Rostropovich, Lithua­nian Na­tional Phil­har­monic, Vil­nius

The Lithua­nian Na­tional Phil­har­monic So­ci­ety and mu­si­cians ded­i­cate this con­cert to the mem­ory of Mstislav Rostropovich (1927– 2007), a long-time friend and like-minded col­league, the leg­endary cel­list and con­duc­tor, world-renowned mu­si­cian and hu­man­ist. On March 27th he would have cel­e­brated his 90th an­niver­sary. The per­form­ers of this con­cert, the Lithua­nian Na­tional Sym­phony Or­ches­tra, soloist Sergej Krylov and con­duc­tor Rober­tas Ser­venikas, had a spe­cial bond with Rostropovich. The con­cert pro­gram will fea­ture the works by Shostakovich and Prokofiev, not by co­in­ci­dence. Rostropovich es­pe­cially ad­mired the two com­posers, knew them per­son­ally, and per­formed many of their works. The mu­sic community of the world knows the record­ing of Prokofiev’s Fifth Sym­phony made in 1988: then Mae­stro con­ducted the Orchestre Na­tional de France.

March 28, Jazz Or­ches­tra “Bratislava Hot Ser­e­naders”, Congress Hall, Vil­nius

The Bratislava Hot Ser­e­naders or­ches­tra be­longs to the list of the few strictly “early jazz” ori­ented bands in the world. The band’s 20 en­thu­si­as­tic mu­si­cians have played to­gether with­out in­ter­rup­tion since the for­ma­tion of the group in sea­son 1991/1992. Their play­ing ad­heres to the sound, style, and feel of such or­ches­tra’s as Paul White­man, Jean Gold­kette and Duke Elling­ton, in ad­di­tion to fea­tur­ing Czech, Slo­vak, and other Euro­pean clas­sic jazz tunes of the pe­riod. The Bratislava Hot Ser­e­naders are well es­tab­lished out­side of Slo­vakia. In 1994, the or­ches­tra won the Sid­ney d´or Prix at the Grand Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic of 20´s and 30´s in Saint Raphael, France. To buy tick­ets to this con­cert please use www.tiketa.lt
