Narbutaite: No Yesterday, No Tomorrow / Lyndon-Gee, Lithuanian National Symphony
Emerging from a cultural environment of silent resistance behind the Iron Curtain, Lithuanian composer Onute Narbutaite has become one of the outstanding Baltic artists of recent decades. Her output has developed from distinctive chamber music into the concerto-like symphonic style heard in the works on this recording. Described by conductor Christopher Lyndon-Gee as music that ‘transcends time and place… [and] resists any attempt at stylistic categorization of pigeonholing,’ these works convey powerful forces that flow between symbols and associations while probing direct emotional connections. Narbutaite’s imposing ‘Tres Dei Matris Symphoniae’ can be heard on Naxos as well: “a mind-blowing listening experience.” (American Record Guide).
