Founded in 1940 by Lithuanian composer, conductor and pianist Balys Dvarionas, the Lithuanian National Symphony Orchestra remains one of the most experienced symphony orchestras in Lithuania. A 96-piece orchestra currently brings together Lithuania’s finest musicians and annually gives some fifty concerts throughout the country. On its international tours, the LNSO has repeatedly performed in most European countries, Japan and Turkey, appearing in some of the world’s greatest concert halls and major festivals, including the Vienna Musikverein, the Alte Oper, Frankfurt, the Barbican Centre, London, Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space, the Schleswig-Holstein Festival, and the Ludwigsburg Festival. The roster of conductors who have led the LNSO includes international figures such as Mstislav Rostropovich, Krzysztof Penderecki, Kurt Masur, Justus Frantz, and Neeme Järvi. The bulk of the orchestra’s repertoire consists of classical and romantic masterpieces spiced by the most innovative twentieth-century scores and nearly all the symphonic works written by Lithuanian composers. Since 1964 Juozas Domarkas has been artistic director and chief conductor.
