This Saturday, May 7, at 6 PM Ausra and I will play an organ duet recital at Vilnius University St. John's church "Tempo a Pollaca".
On the program - premiere performance of 6 sonatas for 4 hands (1781) by the German composer Franz Seydelmann (1748-1806).
The following information is taken from our press release:
Vidas thinks it's quite fun to practice for two people on the same organ bench. "The bench is rather spacious but sometimes our inner hand fingers get tangled up," - smiles musician.
Ausra thinks more families of musicians should make music together - it's a great way to relax.
"After a hard day's work I want to sit down on the bench together and forget all worries. I wait for this moment very much," - says Ausra.
In her opinion, it's impossible to play together, if one is stressed out and it's impossible to stress out, if one plays together.
"One feels right away, if one's partner is tired. That's why family music making takes away all emotional tensions. I feel very happy playing together," - says Ausra.
Vidas feels that when playing together responsibility is divided between the two people but the joy grows twice as much.
"In rather mysterious way one feels that the page will be turned and the stops will be changed on time. One has to feel each other very much. How that happens, it's a mystery to me, but the result - beautiful soul-replenishing music. I hope our listeners will feel the same," - shared the organist.
