If you are not far from Denmark on July 31, come listen to our organ duet in Svendborg International Organ Festival 2019. On the program - Lithuanian organ music for organ duet; lots of pieces will sound for the first time on the organ, including symphonic poem "In the Forest" by Mikalojus Konstantinas Ciurlionis.
This year together with us the guest participants will come from Germany, Italy, Denmark and Poland.
The church of St Nicholas has this large 4 manual Marcussen organ:
It will be especially handy for the symphonic poem "In the Forest" by Ciurlionis because each of us will need two manuals most of the time. Hopefully the sound will imitate symphonic orchestra pretty well. If not, it will sound like a new organ arrangement which is also nice.
We are thankful for an official invitation by organist and composer Tore Bjorn Larsen who is the organist of this church. Tore is the driving force behind ”Svendborg Internationale Orgelfestival” and of all the noon-concerts in Svendborg.
He has been my guest on the Secrets of Organ Playing Podcast:
After the recital in Svendborg we will spend a few days in Copenhagen. Ausra wants to see the Mermaid...
So professionally it's gonna be an exciting summer with lots of work ahead of learning new music.
