Klaipeda Cello Quartet: Mindaugas Bačkus, Gleb Pyšniak, Jurgis Karbauskas, Karolis Vaičiulis
Programme: Antonio Vivaldi "Four Seasons“ (version for four cellos)

The core idea behind this project is the synthesis of music and contemporary dance. The latter will be represented by four very different artistic personalities: Beata Molytė, Aleksas Mažonas, Marius Pinigis, and Benas Šarka. Their joint work will combine the elements of classical ballet, contemporary dance, miming, and performance art. In addition to the polystylistic dance elements, this unique project will also involve the debut of a new musical formation, the Klaipėda Cello Quartet. And what’s more, the audience will be lured by the different sound of Antonio Vivaldi’s Le quattro stagioni: the famous series of four concerti for solo violin and string orchestra have been specially arranged for four cellos. The well-known classical pieces will be even further deconstructed by including extraneous elements that will resonate with the choreographic ideas.

“Let’s experience The Seasons in a different way!” suggests Mindaugas Bačkus, an initiator behind the formation of the Klaipėda Cello Quartet.
