Founded in 1940 by the Lithuanian composer, conductor and pianist Balys Dvarionas, the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra is by far one of the oldest and most reputable symphony orchestras in Lithuania. In operation for more than six decades, it has played an indispensable role in Lithuanian musical life and development of national culture. With 96 players drawn from among Lithuania’s finest musicians the orchestra plays around fifty concerts annually throughout the country, most of them in the Great Hall of the Lithuanian National Philharmonic Society in Vilnius, the home of the orchestra since its inception. Giving from 7 to 15 concerts during international tours each year, the orchestra has performed in most European countries and in Japan, appearing in some of the world’s greatest concert halls and major festivals, including the Musikverein, Vienna, the Alte Oper, Frankfurt, London’s Barbican Centre, Tokyo Metropolitan Space, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, Stars of Moscow, Russian Winter, Warsaw Autumn, Prague Spring, Ludwigsburg Festival, and many others. The Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the orchestra is Juozas Domarkas, who took up his position in 1964. Other regular conductors with the orchestra include Robertas Servenikas, who became Assistant Conductor in 1997 and Conductor in 2000, and Modestas Pitrenas who joined the staff as an Assistant Conductor in 2004. The orchestra’s repertoire ranges from classical and romantic masterpieces to the most innovative twentieth-century scores and world premières of nearly all the symphonic works written by Lithuanian composers. There has also been collaboration with leading conductors and soloists from the international arena.
