Tonight the Vilnius Festival invites to submerge in a concerto genre. The stage will be graced by the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, its temperamental artistic director violinist Sergej Krylov, always brimming with unique ideas, and internationally acclaimed violist Maxim Rysanov, dubbed the viola innovator. Rysanov’s stage partners include such celebrities as Gidon Kremer, Mischa Maisky, Julian Rachlin, Maxim Vengerov, Janine Jansen, etc. Tonight Rysanov will not only play viola, but also conduct Schnittke’s Concerto grosso No. 1.
Maestro Krylov has appeared in Berlin and Munich Philharmonic Halls, Vienna’s Musikverein and Konzerthaus, Brussels’ Bozar, Tokyo’s Suntory Hall, Buenos Aires’ Teatro Colón, Venice’s Teatro La Fenice, and Milan’s Teatro alla Scala among other major concert venues. The legendary Rostropovich has ranked Krylov among the world’s five best violinists. The aforementioned musicians will also share the stage with cellist from Russia Alexander Ramm, a winner of numerous international competitions, Džeraldas Bidva, the principal violin of the Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra, and harpsichordist Vaiva Eidukaitytė-Storastienė.
