Composers Onutė Narbutaitė, Bronius Kutavičius, Teisutis Makačinas, Zita Bružaitė, and Juozas Naujalis enjoy the highest demand alongside the newest collection of Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis’s piano pieces compiled by Vytautas Landsbergis.
The e-store also offers a wide range of songs and instrumental pieces for children as well as a variety of music for professional performers, from instrumentalists and choirs to chamber ensembles and orchestras. The search engine has been adjusted to rank music by instruments making selection easy for teachers and pickiest performers alike. Vinyl records and compact discs split into single composer albums and collections of music by different composers, as many as 135 of them represented currently at the shop.
The analysis of the first-year buyers shows that the e-store has reached performers and listeners far and wide with a third of visitors originating in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Japan, the Netherlands and elsewhere. The shop also occasionally attracts attention of guests from faraway nations, such as India, Thailand, Algeria and Chile.
“We are curious as to how the purchased music lives on and implements its function on other continents, what are the listeners of our music in Asia and Latin America like who have discovered the recordings released by the Music Information Centre Lithuania. The fact that music by Lithuanian composers enjoys demand beyond our borders, while the same buyers come back again and again to musiclithuania.com is a huge motivation to improve and expand the project,” said Lina Aselskytė, the manager of the project.
All the sheet music and recordings sold on musiclithuania.com possess a distinct character, expressed primarily through design by a wide network of collaborating designers. Taktika, a graphic design studio, has rebranded musiclithuania.com, particularly by turning its initial logo, the stave, into a shopping basket. This is aimed at sending all the visitors a simple message: take the basket, take a tour around the shop and discover Lithuanian composers’ music. We also offer you our branded tote bag, already popular among buyers, which says: “Bag full of Notes”, isn’t it a nice little Christmas gift?
