One of the first Lithuanian musicians, Česlovas Sasnauskas (1867-1916), began his creative career at the end of the 19th century, and spent the greater part of his life in St. Petersburg. He entered Lithuanian music history as a composer, musician, and publisher. Though not extensive, Česlovas Sasnauskas' creative legacy is a rich one, and his song "Kur bėga Šešupė" ("Where the Sesupe River Flows"), is considered a golden treasure of Lithuanian music. Česlovas Sasnauskas' list of works includes approximately 100 compositions. The composer's legacy is not marked by a diversity of genres - the majority of his works are written for choir with or without accompaniment, as well as for voice solo with accompaniment; his instrumental compositions include several works for organ.
