New lineup of Festival’s ensemble wowed the audience

The specialty and significance behind the concept of the Festival ensemble Convivium Musicum came to the third concert of the Festival in full glory. The idea of artists, that have not previously performed together, which in just a few days make a full-length program, has proven to be especially interesting to both performers and the audience this time. João Paiva from Portugal – clarinet, Morta Grigaliūnaitė from Lithuania – piano and Filip Tomic from Serbia – cello, have proven that great professionalism always results in an exceptional concert. These young artists have long proven themselves as top soloists. At last night’s concert, they demonstrated the power of chamber music – the power of communication between artists and instruments, and simultaneously highlighting each instrument separately.
