LITHUANIAN STATE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

The Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra was founded by Gintaras Rinkevičius in 1988 and gave its first concert on 30 January 1989. For its tenth anniversary on 30 January 1999 the orchestra held its first concert in a new concert hall with a seating capacity of a thousand, the Vilnius Congress Concert Hall, which is the largest academic concert hall in the capital city. The orchestra has given an impressive number of concerts in Lithuania and abroad, collaborating with leading musicians. The Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra’s musical activities are also documented in a number of recordings, MK Čiurlionis’s symphonic poems In the Forest and The Sea (1991), six CDs of popular symphonic music (1995), a CD of the Portuguese fado singer N. da C. Pereira (1995), works by the American composer M. Kupferman (1996) and compositions by Egberto Gismonti (1997) and others. In 2006 the orchestra received a cultural grant of over a million litas for new instruments from the Japanese government, a mark of international recognition.
