Synaesthesis is inviting the audience to listen to most prominent composers from the Baltic region.
Founded in 2013 by the conductor Karolis Variakojis and the composer Dominykas Digimas, the ensemble’s vision goes beyond sound – into space, light, movement and narrative – anything that allows for professionally performed music to become a multidimensional creation, blurring the boundaries between genres.
The uniqueness of Synaesthesis has been recognized at the International Summer Academy of the University of Music and Performing Arts (MDW) in Vienna, where in 2016 and 2017 the musicians were awarded the Just Composed interpretation prize for the best performance of a premiere piece. The ensemble’s success has also been acclaimed in Lithuania – in 2017, Synaesthesis received the Young Artist Award from Lithuanian Ministry of Culture and an honorary title as Vilnius City Ensemble by Vilnius Municipality in 2019.
The event is organised by the Lithuanian Embassy in the UK and Lithuanian Cultural Attaché in London, and supported by the Lithuanian Culture Institute and Lithuanian Council for Culture.
Concert “Baltic Sense” by Synaesthesis will take place this Wednesday, March 11, at 1:15 p.m. at Southwark Cathedral (London Bridge SE1 9DA, London). Admission is free, but seating is limited. Please register at https://bit.ly/3cDOxAR.
