Čiurlionis: Piano Works

  • Disc number in the directory: MEL CD 1001875

In his works, the father of Lithuanian professional music, a composer, artist, philosopher and poet Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis (1875–1911) embodied the idea of synthesis of arts – music, painting and poetry. His works have taken a special place not only in the history of Lithuanian but also global culture. Through his paintings he tried to express music and interpret sounds with colours. Being a gifted musician and painter, Čiurlionis felt the need to express himself in these two creative spheres. For his bright yet short life (Čiurlionis died at the age of 35), he created about 300 paintings and about 350 musical compositions, most of which were piano miniatures (preludes, variations, "landscapes"). He penned symphonic poems In the Forest (1901), which marked the beginning of the history of Lithuanian professional music, and The Sea (1907), an overture Kęstutis (1902), a cantata for mixed choir and symphonic orchestra De Profundis (1899), compositions for a capella choir to the texts of the psalms. He also wrote down and arranged about 60 Lithuanian folk songs. "I will fly to the distant worlds, to a land of eternal beauty, sunshine and fantasy, to an enchanted country..," Čiurlionis once said. His pantheistical scenic and musical canvases present a picture of the world perceived simultaneously in sound and colour.
