PI "Klasika LT" has been established to produce the highest quality of classical music events in various forms, types and places. Public institution is working on two basic directions – concerts to represent internationally acclaimed artists and educational events to rise up talented young pianists, music lovers.
Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis – the towering personality of Lithuanian cultural heritage. PI “Klasika LT” presents two cycles per year of International M. K. Čiurlionis Music Festival which is helded in Palanga and Vilnius. This year it was organized the fourth time. The Festival is focusing exclusively on M. K. Čiurlionis personality and piano art. This festival is not only the way to represent the world renowned musicians, but also the possibility to play on the same stage for the rising Lithuanian star pianists.
“M. K. Čiurlionis’ music belongs to the greatest pieces of Lithuanian professional music as well as to Lithuanian musical culture of the 20th century. This festival will undoubtedly enrich the programme of events in Palanga – the 2013 Lithuanian Capital of Culture and will leave a lasting impression with every listener.”
