#2 The Many Sides of Albertas Navickas
Sep 27 2021
#2 The Many Sides of Albertas Navickas
In this episode we look into the creative life of San Francisco-based Lithuanian composer Albertas Navickas. Living a life of a scientist and composer, he is immersed in creative collaborations expressing many musical outpourings involving traditional instruments, voices and opera projects. The idiom, sound and aesthetics of his music remind of the forms of French culture (from Impressionism to authors heavily influenced by French music, such as Kaija Saariaho). His music of serene melancholy is supple, pastel, nuanced, formed of transparent textures and subtle dynamics, with specific acoustic colouring; it is a music of a single state (be it a chamber miniature or an opera), which spreads like an aroma and is slightly intoxicating.
