Having studied with Jorge Bolet, Mantas can proudly claim to be a link in the chain of the great romantic pianists - a lineage that can be followed back to Liszt via Leopold Godowsky and Moritz Rosenthal. On his most recent release he conducts the world premiere recording of Mozart's complete Serenade in Eb, K 375, with the European Union Chamber Orchestra.
