On the occasion of the upcoming holidays, Vilnius University choirs Gaudeamus, Virgo, Pro Musica and myself gathered for a virtual performance and together recorded the most famous Lithuanian Christmas carol Sveikas, Jėzau gimusis! by Juozas Naujalis. In this video you can see my solo part. Hope you will enjoy it!
Thank you for your support! You get early access and I get to keep going.

Last Saturday, December 13 I had an opportunity to play about 19 minutes while people were gathering before the annual concert of Lucia Day, organized by the Swedish Embassy at the Vilnius University St. John's church. The result was a fantasia on the themes of these Christmas carols: "Silent Night", "O Holy Night", "Santa Lucia", and "Adeste fideles". Today I'd like to share with you the video of this improvisation in which you can see my hands and manuals from up close - this will make it possible for you to follow what and how I'm improvising.
By the way, since Christmas is just around the corner, tomorrow evening at the same church I'm going to improvise on the Story of the Nativity - a 10 part cycle with such stories as the Annunciation, the Shepherds, Jesus in the Manger, the Angels, the Three Wise Men etc. It will be a thrilling experience with elements of Gregorian chant - the hymn "A solis ortus cardine" connecting all the scenes into one coherent and colorful musical adventure.
