A unique, romantic concert program “Dialogues with Čiurlionis” performed by Dmitry Mayboroda (Germany, Russia), one of the best pianists of the young generation. The program evokes a creative dialogue between three composers and pianists of the early twentieth century – Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Nikolai Medtner. It consisted preludes and variations by M. K. Čiurlionis framed by Medtner’s poetic and nostalgic Sonata “Reminiscenza”, op. 38 Nr. 1, composed in 1918, and the thunderous Second piano Sonata in B minor op. 36, by Rachmaninov, composed in 1913 and revised in 1931.
Dmitry Mayboroda introduced the program by saying: “Thinking about this program, I really wanted to show the difference between Čiurlionis’ music genres, as well as to compare very frequently performed works like Nocturne op. 6, and very rarely performed variations of ‘Sefaa Esec’.”
This concert is a part of M. K. Čiurlionis House project “Čiurlionis Dialogues”. Which the main aim is to represent Čiurlionis legacy and its diversity through the cultural contexts of others by showing Lithuanian culture lovers’ interpretations of Čiurlionis’ works born in other countries of the world and played by well known, international recognition gained performers.
