Vivace Vilnius Festival 2019 concert at the Tolerance Center

Published: 2019-08-06

On the 1st of August the Museum's Tolerance Center was full of people coming to listen to one of the Vivace Vilnius Festival 2019 concerts, featuring exclusive works of John Williams, Anatolijus Šenderovas, Stanislovas Moniuška, Jurgis Kubilius, Philip Glass. World famous composer Philipp Glass comes from the Lithuanian Jewish expat family. Eminent Litvak composer Anatolijus Šenderovas was the friend of our Museum. 19th century Polish composer Stanislovas Moniuška spent almost 20 most beautiful years of his life and work in Vilnius, his connection with it was special. Sensitive tunes of John Williams for the historical period drama "Schindler's List" turn us back to the most horrible period of the European history of the 20th century. However, the Sonata of young Lithuanian composer Jurgis Kubilius for the end of the concert gives us hope for the future. Simonas Miknius (piano), Saulė Buikaitė (violin), Konrad Levicki (violin), Lauryna Lankytutė (piano), Ieva Dūdaitė (piano) performed works of the concert "Memories".


The International Vivace Vilnius Festival has direct links with Boston, which is also very important to our museum - it is home to Samuel Bak, a honorary citizen of Vilnius, who has shared his artistic legacy with Lithuania, and whose museum is a part of the Vilna Gaon State Jewish Museum.
