Congratulations to LMTA teachers — filmmaker Laurynas Bareiša and producer Klementina Remeikaitė, LMTA student and actress Gabija Bargailaitė, and LMTA alumni —cinematographer Narvydas Naujalis, actor Giedrius Kiela, Indrė Patkauskaitė, and Paulius Markevičius who were awarded at the 78th Venice Film Festival for the film Pilgrims (Lithuanian title Piligrimai)!

According to the Lithuanian Film Centre, on the night of 11 September, Lithuanian filmmaker Laurynas Bareiša’s feature film Pilgrims was selected as the best film at the Orizzonti competition programme of the 78th Venice International Film Festival.

Orizzonti, the second most prestigious programme of the Festival, focuses on young filmmakers and other cinematography talents whose works are distinguished for being bold, original, and possessing new aesthetic forms of film expression.

Pilgrims, the triumph of the Festival, tells the story of Paulius and Indrė who come to Karmėlava, a small town in Lithuania, where four years ago, Matas —Paulius’ brother and Indrė’s boyfriend—was killed. Paulius wants to investigate the circumstances of this death; Indrė tries to discourage him from taking reckless actions but then herself starts doubting the need for this journey. Finally, the two of them have to answer why they needed this journey and what this journey has changed.

Pilgrims features rising talents of the younger actor generation – Gabija Bargailaitė, Giedrius Kiela, Indrė Patkauskaitė, and Paulius Markevičius – as well as well-known Lithuanian film professionals – cinematographer Narvydas Naujalis, production designer and artist Sigita Šimkūnaitė, and many others who contributed to the film. The producer of Pilgrims is Klementina Remeikaitė (Afterschool).

Filmmaker Laurynas Bareiša is well-known to the audience of the Venice International Film Festival: in 2017, his short film By the Pool (Lithuanian title Pirtis) was presented in Venice.

The Venice International Film Festival, the world’s oldest film festival, first took place in 1932 and since then has been annually held in late August or early September on the island of Lido, Italy. The festival is part of a larger cultural event– the Venice Biennale – and one of the most prominent competitive film festivals in the world along with the Berlin International Film Festival and Cannes Film Festival.

LMTA sets high aspirations – and starts construction of Academy campus

It’s not just a new academic year that the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre is about to start; it’s also the construction of the LMTA campus! On 31 August, a special ceremony was held to celebrate the beginning of the construction by burying a time capsule on the land plot of the future Academy campus in Olandų Street in Vilnius. The ceremony was attended by the outgoing LMTA Rector Zbignevas Ibelgauptas and the newly elected Rector Judita Žukienė; Jurgita Šiugždinienė, Minister of Education, Science and Sport; Simonas Kairys, Minister of Culture; and Remigijus Šimašius, Vilnius City Mayor.   Other speakers included Gabrielė Žaidytė, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Culture, who shared Prime Minister’s congratulations with the guests of the ceremony; Arvydas Markevičius, Head of JSC Infes, the general contractor of the campus construction, and Dainius Numgaudis, Head of the National M. K. Čiurlionis School of Art.

The ceremony started with the words of congratulation from the outgoing LMTA Rector Prof.  Zbignevas Ibelgauptas, the initiator of the LMTA campus project, who said: “Since the restoration of Lithuania’s Independence, the community of artists and art researchers has been dreaming of a home specially designed for art studies; first, for music, theatre, and dance studies, and later – for cinematography studies. This community has always cherished the dream of being together in one modern space created specifically for art studies, artmaking, and art research. And today, many years later, thanks to the collaboration, purposeful efforts and persistent daily work of the Academy staff and our like-minded supporters and partners, we are taking part in a symbolic ceremony to mark the start of our biggest dream turning into reality. Today, the Academy is entering a new stage – the construction of the LMTA campus.”

The newly elected Rector Assoc. Prof. Dr. Judita Žukienė expressed her joy by stating the fact that the construction of the LMTA campus is a great example of how much can be done within a decade where a closely-knit community shares the same dreams and works together towards achieving them. Judita Žukienė then continued by reading a text, which was soon placed into a time capsule, to all the guests of the ceremony: “In this place, we are planting the hope arisen from the dreams that for over a century have been cherished by Lithuanian artists; dreams about a space that is suitable for art studies, that brings together all creators and is an inspiration for common work. We will make every single effort to make the walls that are to be erected here a source of creation, a citadel of national culture, and a centre of ideas for the art of the future. We hope that the future generations of Lithuanian and international music, theatre, film, dance artists and researchers will enjoy the fruits of our hope and efforts.”

On this special occasion, Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė has shared her greetings with the LMTA community and her words were read by Gabrielė Žaidytė, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Culture. The greeting said: “I sincerely welcome every decisive step forward taken towards a better-quality education, improved conditions for students and all the academia. I do believe that the campus of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre will become a space for creative insights and inspirations not only for students, but also for all those who appreciate education, culture, and art. Let me congratulate you on the start of the construction and wish you the smooth and successful implementation of this significant project.”

Jurgita Šiugždinienė, Minister of Education, Science and Sport spoke to the guests emphasising that “art and creativity is what makes us human and helps us stay human. The importance of art is vital if we want to bring up free and artistic personalities who can creatively adapt to the changing world. I wish that this place would not only provide comfortable and inspiring conditions for creative work but would also become a true Valley of Creation. May it become a place that grows and nurtures the creative potential of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, the creative potential of Vilnius City and that of our entire country.”

Simonas Kairys, Minister of Culture, also shared his joy about the construction of the LMTA campus: “Even though sometimes I still may come across a belief that cultural and artistic phenomena are to be born somewhere in darkness, in misery or suffering, I dare to perceive this attitude rather obsolete. Our artists as well as young people who are just starting this path deserve the very best conditions and a modern environment. I have no doubt that the campus will possess exactly such conditions and environment. And I am sure it will be significant not only for the academia, but will be established as an open, welcoming and attractive space for all citizens and guests of the city. “

Remigijus Šimašius, Mayor of Vilnius City, echoed the idea by the Minister of Culture: “The Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre is the cradle of culture in Vilnius and deserves to be based in excellent premises. The campus designed by Rolandas Palekas is bound to be such. The campus is going to smoothly blend into the landscape of Vilnius, raise the bar of quality of the whole district and will not only be a great home for creative people, but also – I have no doubt about it – become an attractive high-quality public space for all Vilnius residents.”

Dainius Numgaudis, Head of the National M. K. Čiurlionis School of Art, was delighted about the future neighborhood with the LMTA and expressed his hopes that it will bring about joint activities and projects between the two schools. Arvydas Markevičius, Head of JSC Infes, the general contractor of the construction project, wished the construction process to be smooth.

The idea of the LMTA campus construction which would unite all the infrastructure necessary for studies and relocate the Faculty of Music and the Faculty of Theatre and Film from the LMTA buildings now located in different parts of Vilnius under one roof was born a decade ago. In 2015, together with the Lithuanian Union of Architects, the competition for the architectural LMTA campus project was announced. The winner was Paleko Archstudija (architects R. Palekas, D. Zakaitė, B. Puzonas, A. Palekienė, J. Jankauskas).

The construction of the Faculty of Theatre and Film and the Small Block of Halls are planned to be completed in 2023. The project also includes the Faculty of Music, the Grand Block of Halls, buildings for theory classes and administration, the Library, and the Student Dormitory.

Lithuanian chamber music – in recordings of LMTA graduates and concerts

To maintain the tradition of promoting Lithuanian music, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA) is pleased to announce the recordings of sonatas for violin and piano by famous Lithuanian composers of the 20th century and invite to two exceptional concerts. On August 1 at the Paliesius Manor and August 7 at the LMTA Great Hall, soloists Simona Venslovaitė (violin) and Veronika Kopjova (piano), who are frequent music performers in Lithuania and abroad, will play chamber music by Juozas Gruodis, Kazimieras Viktoras Banaitis, Stasys Vainiūnas, Povilas Dikčius, Julius Juzeliūnas, and Justinas Bašinskas. And what is more: on August 2-6, these works will be recorded by sound directors and a Grammy Awards nominees Vilius Keras and Aleksandra Kerienė.

Sonata for Violin and Piano in D minor by Juozas Gruodis (1922), Sonata for Violin and Piano in D minor by Kazimieras Viktoras Banaitis (1935), Sonata for Violin and Piano op. 38 by Stasys Vainiūnas (1971), Small Sonata for Violin and Piano by Povilas Dikčius (1971), Sonata for Violin and Piano by Julius Juzeliūnas (1972), Sonata for Violin and Piano by Justinas Bašinskas (1977) — all these works belong to the Golden Funds of the 20th -century Lithuanian chamber music and were last recorded over 30 years ago, while some of them have never been released as CDs. This has led to the poor appreciation and accessibility of these Lithuanian chamber music masterpieces to a wider audience in Lithuania and abroad.

Yet, the memories of the atmosphere and musical life of those times shared by earlier performers of these musical pieces as well as their colleagues have not faded: these reflections are particularly valuable when we want to come up with the interpretation of the works as skilfully as possible to follow the composers’ intentions. As a result, we have welcomed the idea to not only perform and record the works but also engage in a lively discussion with the experts of this repertoire —prominent Lithuanian chamber musicians and LMTA professors— pianist Irena Uss-Armonienė; cellist Rimantas Armonas; violinist Petras Kunca; violist, conductor, and musicologist Donatas Katkus; and violinist Simona Venslovaitė and pianist Veronika Kopjova, LMTA graduates who are preparing the performance (the discussion was led by Gerūta Griniūtė).

The ardent recording sessions are going to take place on August 2-6 at the Horseshoe Concert Hall of the Paliesius Manor which is more and more often preferred by world-class musicians as the venue for their recordings. The performers of the musical works — Simona Venslovaitė and Veronika Kopjova are LMTA graduates pursuing a career in Austria and Germany. Simona Venslovaitė plays with Ensemble XX. Jahrhundert (artistic director Peter Burwik), a contemporary music ensemble in Vienna, and the Munich Chamber Orchestra (artistic director Clemens Schuldt) in the first violin section. Pianist Veronika Kopjova teaches at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna and is a member of the contemporary music ensemble Platypus. The recordings will feature exceptional instruments: the admirable Steinway & Sons concert piano and the especially valuable mid-18th century Florentine violin by Giovanni Battista Gabrielli. The sound director is Vilius Keras who has been nominated for the prestigious Grammy Award several times and whose recorded albums have been featured in international record catalogues (including Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla’s Deutsche Grammophon recordings).

The programme will also be available as a live event: August 1, 2 p.m. –  Paliesius Manor (featuring sonatas by K. V. Banaitis, J. Juzeliūnas, J. Bašinskas and J. Gruodis); August 7, 5 p.m. – the Great Hall of the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre located in the very central part of Vilnius (the programme includes sonatas by J. Gruodis, P. Dikčius, and S. Vainiūnas). The events are free of charge.

The recordings and concerts are part of project Juozas Gruodis, Kazimieras Viktoras Banaitis, Stasys Vainiūnas, Povilas Dikčius, Julius Juzeliūnas, Justinas Bašinskas: the most important sonatas for violin and piano by Lithuanian composers of the 20th century carried out by the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. The project encourages studies, performance, and promotion of the most significant Lithuanian chamber music repertoire of the 20th century in Lithuania and worldwide. The Paliesius Manor is the Project partner. The Project is sponsored by the Lithuanian Council for Culture.

On August 17-20, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre (LMTA) invites doctoral students at the LMTA and other higher education institutions to Summer School for Doctoral Students in Art and Art Studies that is to take place at the LMTA Klaipėda Faculty. 


The aim of the Summer School is to make the paradigm of artistic research site-specific for the domain of Lithuanian scientific and artistic research by expanding the concept of artistic research and honing doctoral students’ skills of developing artistic projects of higher quality and presenting them. In the last decade, artistic research, having notably escalated within the international cultural, scientific, and educational environment, promotes the appearance of new cultural and artistic products, a closer connection between artists and society, smoother development of creative innovations, and enables a more efficient cooperation between researchers and artists.

Summer School seminars and lectures present the major trends in artistic research at European higher education institutions and discuss issues arising in the process of the development of final art projects. The participants will be introduced to the strategies and methodologies for the development and modelling of such projects.

Alongside artistic research, the School will contribute to the improvement of general research competencies by enabling doctoral students to participate in seminars on academic ethics and creative writing. The academic ethics course will help the participants to gain a thorough understanding of the values and ethical principles researchers must follow; identify key ethical dilemmas; learn how to minimise misconduct in research by analysing liability and sanctions for violating research ethics; learn how to apply guidelines of ethical behaviour; and build up public trust in science. The creative writing seminar will analyse, both theoretically and practically, the possibilities of applying creative writing in artistic research. Summer School graduates will be sharing their achievements and experiences of how doctoral studies have helped them attain their creative goals.

Summer school will enable the participants — doctoral students at the LMTA and other institutions — to take part in seminars led by the most outstanding LMTA and foreign scholars and researchers, listen to their presentations, present their own research, master competencies related to academic ethics and creative writing, develop joint artistic and scientific research and to implement its dissemination.

The project is funded by the Research Council of Lithuania.

Amplification of the seasonal regeneration. After the summer holidays, the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theater, and its Central Palace, revived and pulsated with life. Paulius Večera (VECERA), a B3 year electronic music student, is preparing to “amplify” the direct processes that are taking place in the “body” of the Academy. These sounds of the natural environment become a kind of playground where Paulius will freely express himself by altering, modifying and broadcasting the internal processes of the Academy externally from the Balcony during the usual, daily lunch break.
