Vykintas Baltakas' Pasaka at Instants Chavirés

(c) Céline LoryVykintas Baltakas' Pasaka will be performed on 15 November 2012 in Montreuil at the Instants Chavirés by Brussels-based musician Stephane Ginsburgh. The composer has described the text of the piece, which was written between 1995 and 1997 and has been described by critics as “obsessive and astonishing”, as being “based on different parts of Indian mythology - creation of the world, creation of the night, born of the death, Markandea's visions, etc. But the relationship beetween them, succession, presence of the speaker, evolution in the music create a new dramaturgic level - which is not less important as the basic story.”
