Vytautas Montvila


In the 1960s Vytautas Montvila (1935-2003) was one of the most enthusiastic modernizers of Lithuanian music, blending modern composition techniques - micropolyphony, aleatorics, serialism - with the elements of the Lithuanian folk music, especially sutartinės (old polyphonic singing). One of the most vivid examples of this period is symphonic composition Gothic Poem (1970), often played in Lithuania and abroad. His oeuvre numbers over 300 symphonic, chamber, vocal and choral compositions as well as harmonizations of Lithuanian folk songs. Especially popular is his piano music.
