THE 54-TH SUMMER OF PIANO MUSIC AT THE M.K. ČIURLIONIS MEMORIAL HOUSE MUSEUM IN DRUSKININKAI HAS OPENED
The 54th Summer of Piano Music concert series at the M. K. Čiurlionis Memorial House Museum in Druskininkai started on June 26. It is the longest existing festival of this type in Lithuania nurturing tradition of concerts in the apple orchard of the Čiurlionis Memorial Museum, launched by M. K. Čiurlionis himself over 100 years ago.
In 1965, this unique tradition was revived and has been fostered by today’s pianists, the prize winners of the Čiurlionis International Piano Competition.
Every summer on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons, piano music fills the apple orchard through an open window, intertwining with light breeze and birdsongs, allowing the audience to experience the harmonious unity of music and nature.
Rich diversity and memorable conceptual programmes mark 2019 concert series. The audience will meet both today’s professors – the winners of the first, the then national, M.K. Čiurlionis competitions, and also winners of recent competitions.
