Dedicated to the 80th Anniversary of Lithuanian Composer Bronius Kutavičius In Cooperation with the 43rd International Baltic Musicological Conference.
Similar to an anthropologist, he endeavoured to reconstruct the rituals, values, identities and feelings supposedly characteristic of archaic cultures, as well as to reform the very notion of a musical work, as a structured configuration of sounds, by giving a new lease of life to narrativity that has been so adamantly denounced by the avant-garde. In his music, particular importance was given to other forms of art (literature, fine and folk arts, folklore), historical imagination, theatrical gestures, and sound and spacetime relations.
