Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lithuanian conductor and cellist David Geringas boasts a large performing repertoire, from early Baroque to contemporary, showing his flexibility as an artist. The repertoire Geringas has chosen for this 2-disc release is chronological- the first disc contains pre-war Lithuanian music, and the second disc contains Lithuanian music from just after the war until the start of the 1980s. Geringas writes of this release: “Lithuania is my home country. I was born and raised in Vilnius. But what does Lithuania sound like? This double CD is a recollection of the country and the sentiments of its people. Lithuania does not only sound in Lithuania, but everywhere where people remember Lithuania.” Lithuanian conductor and cellist David Geringas boasts a large performing repertoire, from early Baroque to contemporary, showing his flexibility as an artist.
