Justina Repečkaitė

Composer

Justina Repeckaite

     Repečkaitė cultivates particularly strict manner of writing. In this kind of music every move and detail is accurately prospected, the primal conception develops in to a well calculated system where all important aspects are balanced. Even music written for small ensembles has a degree of monumentality, as if it was a realization of designs dictated by higher powers. Repečkaitė’s musical language is complicated, but clear and readable. Gravitational waves ruling a piece determine ruthlessness’s of this aesthetics and there is no attempt to daydream or spend any time in the state of beauty.  It is an intellectual move whose orbit is drawn with the sharpest pencil.
Šarūnas Nakas, composer and cultural critic

Tapisserie was performed by MCME both at World Music Days 2018 in Beijing and also in Chengdu, during their residency at Sichuan Conservatory of Music.
