Today is the birthday of Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis (1875-1911), the greatest Lithuanian artist of all time. On this occasion, we would like to share with you this video from our recent concert in Pärnu, Estonia where we played his Symphonic Poem "In the Forest" as organ duet on the historical Kolbe organ from 1928 at St Elisabeth church. The monumental composition was arranged for two pianos by Jonas Aleksa, edited by Ruta Riktere and Zbignevas Ibelhauptas. Thanks to Ines Maidre for invitation to play in this amazing church! Hope you will enjoy it!

This Thursday I've been invited to perform in Liepaja, Latvia at the international organ music festival on the largest mechanical organ in the world which is located in the Holy Trinity Cathedral there in town.
The program of the recital will consist of music by Lithuanian composers - Juozas Naujalis, Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis and myself. If any of you will be in Latvia this week, I hope to meet you there after the recital. Here's an interesting film about this spectacular organ (131/IV/ped) which reveals a colorful diversity of this festival.
