Galina Savinienė

Galina Savinienė dedicates most of her attention to vocal-instrumental music. Her songs are marked by expressive melodies, easily graspable and performer friendly. Their music language is simple, mainly employing major-minor harmonic system. Instrumental works are a little more radical, dominated by dissonant combinations of seconds, fourths and fifths, as well as sonoristic effects. Characteristic of her music is transparent texture and sensible use of compositional means. "I do not analyse music, I simply compose, however I try to process an afflux of feelings rationally", maintains Galina Savinienė.
