Mano Nata project (streamed concert-talk)

Posted on January 17, 2022

With its credo Open Meet Understand (Atsiverk Pažink Suprask) Mano Nata concert-talk project invites Lithuanian composers to present their work for younger audiences. Check the video on Youtube link where in the live-streamed presentation from Lithuanian Composer’s Union Justina Repeckaite speaks about her works for solo instruments & tape: Toro, performed by the tubist Mikas Kurtinaitis & Incantare performed by the flutist Salomeja Kalvelyte. Musicians are students of the specialised Master’s degree of performance of contemporary music and improvisation at the Lithuanian Academy of Music. Justina speaks (in Lithuanian!) about her interest in using singing while playing the wind instruments and inspirations for her compositions: corrida, –  for Toro (2015) and charms, – for Incantare (2018).

Sound/video team: Roberto Beccera & Jurgis Jarasius. Other composers who took part in the project: Mykolas Natalevicius, Vykintas Baltakas, Rytis Mazulis.
