NEW MUSIC TUESDAY | Composer Gediminas Gelgotas– ‘To The Skies’ for Cello & Piano [WORLD PREMIERE]

Acclaimed cellist David Geringas performing the world premiere performance of Lithuanian composer Gediminas Gelgotas’ ‘To the Skies’ for Cello and Piano

Acclaimed cellist David Geringas performing the world premiere performance of Lithuanian composer Gediminas Gelgotas’ ‘To the Skies’ for Cello & Piano.

Recorded live on the 12th of December, 2019 – in Vilinius, Lithuania.

“The whole process of composing is different every time … in my case, the initial idea almost always comes in a form of a little musical phrase or motive which usually also brings a vision of the structure of the piece and then normally it is a long way until it gets its final shape…” Gedimina has this week told The Violin Channel.

“With ‘To the Skies’ it was different - and only a few times in my life was it all this fast and easy, i’d say … I wrote it in one day, actually, just in a few afternoon hours …” the 33-year-old has said.

“The musical material came to me … this vocal, melodic line with some intervalic leaps, almost without accompaniment and a rhythm that brings this quasi improvisational feel to the melody … I immediately was so sure, that without a doubt, I had a feeling that everything was in the right place."
