Just last week, the Vilnius municipal choir Jauna Muzika, led by the conductor and composer Vaclovas Augustinas, came back from a tour in Germany, where they had been invited to perform Bach’s Grand Mass in B minor by Karl-Heinz Steffens, the very energetic conductor of the Rheinland-Pfalz State Philharmonic Orchestra and organiser of the Friedberger Musiksommer festival.
“I came into contact with the Lithuanian choir Jauna Muzika when performing Joseph Haydn’s oratorio "The Creation" in Jerusalem. It was then that I discovered their exceptional choral culture and disciplined sense of ensemble. When I heard them, I just seemed to have lost the ability to conduct for a while. And I realised that with such an elite vocal ensemble I would like to implement some ambitious project,” said the conductor Karl-Heinz Steffens in his interview to the local press about his collaboration with Jauna Muzika in 2008.
