Polyphonic, modal, and varied
Yesterday I shared with you a video with my improvisations based on the fresco above the organ from the recital on October 10. Today I'd like you to listen for the first time to Festive Sonata-Symphony (2015) by Teisutis Makacinas which was premiered at the same recital.
This is a big 3 movement work. It has a very complex polyphonic texture, some harsh sounds, lots of modal thinking taken from Lithuanian folk music, and in general quite colorful and unpredictable design because of constant variation of melodic and rhythmic materials which is a signature style of Makacinas.
Enjoy this video.
